All in a day

Today we baked and glued our gingerbread houses together.
Tomorrow we will decorate them.
Even Hailey got a baby gingerbread house!

We are making my dad a crate of different types of root beers for Christmas. The sooner we wrap them the better as we already drank 2 of them... delicious! I liked Squamscot Birch Root Beer which has a wintergreen taste... Steve likes Bulldog; you can taste the honey in it.

Who knew there were that many different brands? We are going to make a cheat sheet describing the different flavors based on reviews we found online.

Ex. Hank's Gourmet: sweet and creamy, tastes like the lovechild between root beer and cream soda.

Some are spicy, some are sweet, some are super foamy, some leave different flavored aftertastes. Some are European, some Australian. It's a nice variety.

Then we wandered around the Grove. Steve's face lit up like a little kid when we went in Pottery Barn kids and he saw all the Star Wars stuff. Thank Heavens they don't make those sheets in a California King size or they might be on my bed!

Hailey had a good time seeing all the Christmas lights and the water show at the fountains. She is so well behaved in public. Last night we took her to a movie screening in Hollywood and she was as good as a peach! Too bad it probably won't last forever.
