Gingerbread House Build Off, Christmas Programs and Gift Wrapping

This weekend was full.  Full of trips to the stores, long lines, Gingerbread House Build Off and a Christmas Program for my niece.  Plus a few good hours on Sunday of much needed rest.

FRIDAY
After work, E and I headed over to our local furniture shop so we can find a new bed.  We will be moving into my parents house in the next few weeks and getting an order placed, delivered, and set up is very much so in our best interest.

I am looking for an upholstered bed in a grey or dark grey with a high head board.  I am so over the college dorm life we have been living so far read for a little bit of calm, cleanliness with a little bit of glam.  

After that we thought we were going to go to Old Navy but once E saw the check out line, he was like no.  Let's go.   Only to return on Saturday with a much longer line = | . 

Later Friday night I spent a few hours by my mom wrapping gifts and watching television while E spent some time with friends playing poker.  

SATURDAY
We filled Saturday with our last minute shopping which was mostly gift cards and a few minor Christmas Eve and Christmas Day attire needs.  Once that was done it was time to focus on the last minute items we needed for our First Annual Gingerbread House Build Off Competition.

I can honestly say that it is super messy, but it was tons and tons of fun.  I was so glad to be able to hang out with family and do exactly what the holidays are meant to be.

SUNDAY
E had to work Sunday morning so I spent most of the day sleeping, LOL. Once he was closer to being done we met up and had lunch with my parents, nephew and my niece.  Then it was time for E to go home and rest a little and I headed out with my mom to watch my niece's Christmas Program at school.  

I was able to mess with video again and hopefully I can get the video together to send to out to her parents.  I am really starting to love video even if it is for family events.  I really need to learn a few tips and tricks so send them my way if you know of any.  I actually found new settings on my tripod I didn't know ever existed.
