  4. Those are amazing! Sadly, we aren't sending out cards this year and haven't for a few years because it's just too costly. I do have an eCard, though - and it's in today's blog post!

  23. When our mom was reading us your blog post today (yes, she does that), she read it as, "You may lick the photos to enlarge." And of course, our baby sister Viola licked the screen. We'll admit, those gingerbread house pictures look good enough to lick! Purrs....

  24. BUT WHAT DID THOSE GINGERBREAD HOUSES TASTE LIKE???!!!
    Why is it that humans will omit the most important information? I mean, yes, it's quite obvious that the designs are all clever and everything.
