Please! I am so, so tired. I have step-parent-in-laws coming to visit early tomorrow. They would like us to come to Christmas breakfast at 9 am December 25th. I am touched whenever family loves our kids enough to want our company. But Christmas morning--even if we worship the night before--is almost impossible with small children. So I need to pass along their Christmas gift tomorrow, and it needs to be nice, since we're not joining them later. I hadn't bought them but one small trinket! I'm out of energy and money for a trip to the store. My husband won't be home until late. I do have ingredients for gingerbread. If I bake them in fanciful Bundt pans dusted with confectioner's sugar, surely that will be enough. I am so grateful my pantry is stocked for baking!
Did I mention baby had her shots yesterday and, feverish, won't let me put her down?
Update: gingerbread baking, has the pleasant side effect of making my house smell heavenly for guests! Also realized I have a 25 cent floral container to reuse. I am soaking the foam overnight. In the morning I can whip together a basket of holiday greenery to go with the cake.
