The "Snoopy House" has been a
family tradition since I was very small.
It's a house near my grandparents' old house, in Costa Mesa.
Every year, they decorate with some really elaborate decorations...
Last weekend, we stopped by on the way home from Sunday dinner.
It is very strange, being there as an adult,
making the same traditions with our own kids...
Christmas just isn't complete without a visit to the Snoopy House :)

For a kid that called me a cheater
( scroll down if you missed that story),
Jack was so happy to decorate a
"store made" gingerbread house! I think he licked his fingers more than anything, and even was sneaking M&Ms when he thought I wasn't looking...during the decorating, he said, "I didn't know that decorating a house could be so much fun"...

Today, Jack and I went shopping for some things
I needed for school.
We are studying the Gingerbread Man, and I have found that buying the cookies are MUCH easier than trying to bake with 20 five year olds.
It's one of those things where I'd rather spend the $...
Jack, of course, was curious.
"Mom. Why are you buying those cookies?"
"You aren't making the cookies?"
"Well, Miss Joo is making them."
"Some teachers like to make them, and some teachers like to buy them"
"Mom. That sounds like cheating to me".
