Hey guys easy on hammering other folks commenting and asking questions. Hollie opens her blog up to everyone and answers questions with grace. Let's respect that.

Hi Fletcher, I have a great holiday treat, and it's not even mine! It is the most simple and the most fun! Gingerbread Houses! They are so easy to make and the amount of effort can range from fairly simple to extravagant. ( I believe this is even a competition in some places ) I was at a friends house this past weekend, and her husband made one with his boys, and it was beautiful. It really gives you time with your family and you can really let the kids, ( and some adults..James..) use their imagination. Best of all, you can buy the kit just about anywhere this time of the year, you can use what comes in it, or go off the norm and buy all kids of things to add to it, from gum drops to bubble tape, to cotton candy and peppermint candy canes. Have fun, that is the most important part. Shut the TV, play some Christmas Carols (106.7 has them on all day) and just plain enjoy your family.

Agreed. If he is impersonating a police officer - WHY? It is not just creepy but illegal. Do not assume he has been reported, call the police department & tell someone. There are many REAL officers that would be able to help you out. You do not want to be among the "Oh - I knew he was off" AFTER he does something......
