Charlie met Santa for the first time yesterday =) He was in his little Santa suit his Aunt Sissy got him. It was so cute! A group of teenage girls walked by and all went "awwwwww" and Charlie just beamed. He is such a ham...

Shane's Gingerbread House

Charlie and I went to check out my brother Shane's gingerbread house on display at Crossgates Mall with the other competitors in the HATAS Home Sweet Gingerbread Home fundraiser. He is extremely talented and did such a great job!

HATAS is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charity that helps the poor, the homeless, and others in need lead independent, self-sufficient and safe lives in the community. We are a resource for collaborative change. In addition to being the gateway to homeless services in Albany County, HATAS also serves over 5,000 men, women, and children each year in homeless, housing, mental health, employment, and domestic violence programs.

He and his colleagues took first place with a Peanuts themed gingerbread house. Absolutely adorable and for such a good cause! Go Shane!
