Gingerbread House Decorating Day

December 18, 2008

We have so many lovely traditions at our house. One of which is decorating gingerbread houses with the Kinkade family. Christopher couldn't come this year because he was stuck at the Boy Scout Christmas tree lot, but it is usually Nathan and Paul who do most of the decorating of the house while the others get distracted rather quickly and go downstairs to the basement of no return.

Mrs. Kinkade, Dee, is one of the kindest people that I know and also the calmest. She manages four children with grace and ease, and they are four very well-behaved, polite children. I know the FIFTH child on the way will be the same with Dee and Michael parenting them.

We love the Kinkade family with all our hearts and will be so sad to see them move to Forest Grove in June. It is great news for Mr. Kinkade though because he is realized his lifelong dream of being a fire chief!
