My first time...Christmas style

Day 16: What is something you did/experienced for the first time this year?

How very fitting.  I did these things just today.

I made gingerbread men for the first time today.  And, I made them from scratch.  My house smells amazing!  Nobody in my family likes gingerbread (like I have never said that before...ha).  I don't care for it either.  I will be taking them to the Senior Citizen's Center tomorrow for them to enjoy.  They did turn out quite cute.  I loved decorating them.  These are crappy cell phone pictures and I plan on taking better ones tomorrow with my camera.
Mr & Mrs Gingerbread

I intentionally broke the leg off so I could make him sad.  

The second thing I did for the first time is go to the Yukon City Lights.  They were amazing.  So many wonderful lights.  I definitely want to make that a family tradition.  It was about 3 miles of lighted park.  All of them were sponsored displays and a lot of them went with a theme (like a dentist did a train called the 'Molar Express' and it had teeth on the railroad cars.  I took a lot of pictures with my cell phone and as soon as I get all those uploaded I will post them.  But for now here is a picture of the entrance.  

I cannot believe this month is half way over.  Holy moly where did the time go...
