Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Holiday Sugar Shack


Christmas time is family time with some of the most enjoyable moments being in the kitchen. Children and adults enjoy eating all the festive goodies but participating in the preparation of those wonderful Christmas treats is even better! Just think of all the taste-testing...the cake batter, the cookie dough, the sprinkles, the candy! 

December 12 is...
Gingerbread House Day

From the Gingerbread House:
Naomi: "Lily, you're not talking about muffins here, this is a gingerbread house from scratch, this is hard. Remember childbirth? This is harder. So is this for Rick?"
Lily: "What? No. I would never do Rick a gingerbread house. He'd probably just renovate it or something."

Gingerbread House Day is a day that can be celebrated in a wide variety of fun ways, and is a day that children in particular enjoy. Celebrating Gingerbread House Day involves creating or beginning the creation of a gingerbread house. But, the best part is that once the house has been created it can be devoured one bite at a time over a period of many days or simply enjoyed as a terrific holiday decoration!

Take the time now to plan your 'holiday sugar shack'. The plans alone take time, then, comes the recipe and purchase of the ingredients. Gather the family together tonight with dinner table conversation being discussion of what to include in your sugar shack!



There are some truly architecturally challenging gingerbread houses. OR just simply be creative and design one of your own. BUT you better get started for Christmas is only 12 days away. Have fun with friends and family!
