Here is my layout ... Hoooray! I finally got it to work properly. Neither IE nor Chrome were cooperating. I guess Firefox is definitely the way to go! Thank you for the great template. It was really fun to work with, and I love the results! I added the journaling under the layout here in case you would like to read it. I know, I know ... I write a lot, probably too much for a lot of folks. In fact, my own son thinks I write too much. LOL! However, journaling is one of the most important parts of creating records like this. As people write fewer and fewer letters to each other, we are losing valuable ground in maintaining the continuity of history, at least history insofar as every day life is concerned. Historians in the past used letters to piece together how people in the 16th through 20th centuries lived their daily lives. I doubt that email messages, Facebook posts, and -- God forbid! -- tweets will provide the same richness of detail for historians in the far-distant future. What do you think?

My youngest son and his only child (so far!) had a very merry time together decorating a little Gingerbread House with all kinds of icing and candy embellishments. Not all of the goodies went on the cake, of course. After all, taste testing is a prerequsite of any endeavor such as this. A fair amount of icing also wound up on shirts and pants as well as arms and faces, but that is what washing machines and bath tubs are for, right? The important thing is not even that the little Gingerbread House got decorated. No, the most important thing of all is that father and daughter had a wonderful time together and created a memory they will never forget.
