BDAC Gingerbread Festival

Bountiful Davis Arts Center put on the CUTEST Gingerbread Festival!
Andrew entered into the gingerbread house decorating contest, and although he didn't win 1st place, he felt like he did because HIS house got to be displayed on the FRONT table.  Everyone was so kind to Andrew and asked to take his picture, and congratulated him on a great job! I think he felt like celebrity!  In addition to the houses on display, they had Santa, face painting, and crafts to make snowglobes!  And the only cost of admission was 1 can of food for the food bank! It was a great day!



























Thanks so much Bountiful Davis Arts Center!!

(If you would like to see the gingerbread houses, they will be on display until Dec. 23rd).

The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up

Last year I read "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up" by Mari Kondo.  
It was a FABULOUS book!
I went after my house in a hurry and made a lot of changes, and a lot of trips to DI, but I cannot tell you how much better life is when we simplify!  I am not perfect, but it does feel so much better! 
And this is very brave of me to post the before pictures--we were getting a little out of control!

Thanksgiving 2017



This year was a Hodgkinson Thanksgiving year!
It was wonderful as usual!  
Mom did darling tables, delicious food, and great company! 
(Although, we REALLY missed being with the McMurrays).
Lindsay always loves to help with the rolls--she is going to be a great baker!

Thanks mom and dad for the dinner--and yummy leftovers the following day!
