Not a goddamn Christmas post.

I made the mistake of buying the Christmas chocolate advent calenders on the sixth of December this year .. so on the first day, Rocco got to eat six chocolates.

Try telling a 3yr old why he can't have six advent chocolates every day. He will not understand .. tantrums will ensue and the calenders will lay on top of the fridge gathering dust until Christmas morning when they can eat all the goddamn chocolate they want to.

Max did craft all by himself and came up with these:

I'M SERIOUS. And very proud. They are double Ninja Stars.

I paid him $1 for each one and then made them into Christmas decorations.

I had to put the christmas tree up by myself this year. I put it up by myself every year, but this year it stung hard. I'm the only adult in this house now. But I swear to god, nothing ... and I mean NOTHING, says Christmas more than an oversized santa tie from Hot Dollar.

                   He has more Christmas spirit than everybody put together.

Every year I say, I'm going to make a gingerbread house from scratch! And never, ever do it.

This year I decided to do it despite myself anyway. Tried to force myself to get all festive and shit. This is what happened.



  1. Happy Boxing Day...... looks like it was the day for it- jump over to my blog to see what happened in our house when the letters from Santa came in the mail......

  2. I love your video so much. After a long bad day you made me laugh, thank you.

  3. The look on your face after you demolish it - priceless. But didn't it feel good?

  4. Best. House. Evah.

    You are my favourite Christmas blogger.

  5. Far out Eden you really smish smash that gingerbread house. I love it.

    Max is one crafty boy! Despite his lack of acess to home craft boxes.

    I am hoping the comparison between marriage and the gingerbread house stopped at the second scene......

    Happy boxing day to you too. X

    And Rocco looks fantastic!

  6. Gingerbread houses are the work of the devil. So I love that you gave yours what for! I choked back laughter & tears. xx

    Ps - awesome job Max - I am so going to steal those Xmas deco ideas

    Rocco - the cutest tree topper by far.
