A Tinkerbell and her gingerbread house #KNK #Keunekeun

It's not easy to draw with edible pens on gingerbread.  Especially if the tip isn't as narrow as I'd like.  So the logo didn't come out as well as I'd like, but KNK fans will get it.

A Monbebe safari on gingerbread #MonstaX #KPop #Making

My sculpting skills need a lot of work, but I think it's cute.  The gingerbread house wasn't as big as I thought, so it took two houses to get all of the members.

Of course, this is the inspiration behind the project..

Friday fun with a gingerbread house #MonstaX #Got7 #Seventeen

My daughter and I haven't done one of these in a few years, so I decided it was time.  It was a preassembled gingerbread house, which made it a little easier.  She took one half, I took the other.  When I decorated the roof, I wanted to see if I could get a rise out of her, unfortunately not. :)  I did discover that trying to put canned icing on to a roof with a toothpick is easier said than done.  I may try a paint brush next time.  Stay tuned as I may get another one to do.

Mystery Room Monday@MysteryRoomAtlanta #Gwinnett #family

I can't give a lot of details as what goes on in the room themselves, other than to say my daughter and I had a blast.  She and I have visited the Mystery Room at Sugarloaf Mills twice now. We started "easy" with a level one SuperHero room. Then advanced to a level two Zombie Apocolypse room. We finished the first time with 4 minutes left.  The second time we had 16 minutes left. The second time we also took one of my daughter's friends with us as well. At $20/person, we can't do it often, but it's definitely something fun to do when we have the time and money.

ATLANTA, Nov. 22, 2016 – A cup of cheer has officially been poured, as the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta has launched its holiday celebration. Featuring larger-than-life decorations, special seasonal exhibits and beverages, one-of-a-kind handmade gifts and more, the attraction provides a uniquely Atlanta experience for out-of-town guests and long-time locals alike.

“Coca-Cola has been a special part of seasonal celebrations for generations, and similarly, the World of Coca-Cola has become a favorite destination for fans from around the world looking to experience the magic of the holidays,” said General Manager of Retail and Attractions for the World of Coca-Cola Russell Jacobs. “Each year, we look forward to welcoming guests to make memories and celebrate the holidays with us.” 

When you visit the attraction this season, be sure to hit these five holiday highlights:
1.    Curious about why ol’ Saint Nick always wears red? Learn the true story through the “History of the Coca-Cola Santa” exhibit. The exhibit features several paintings of the famous Santa that Coca-Cola commissioned Haddon Sundblom to illustrate in the 1930s.
2.    Sample the seasonal flavors in the Taste It! beverage lounge and rate your favorites. Good luck choosing between Gingerbread Coke® and Chocolate Cherry Coke® - or try them both!
3.      Step up your Secret Santa game with a handcrafted accessory from the 5by20 artisan collection  and join the Coca-Cola initiative to empower 5 million women entrepreneurs by 2020. Find 5by20 items and other perfect gifts for everyone on your list when you visit The Coca-Cola Store.
4.      Snap and share a selfie with the Coca-Cola Polar Bear, and capture a group shot aboard Santa’s sleigh. Let the world know you’re a fan using #WorldofCocaCola, and you might even see your photo on World of Coca-Cola social media channels.
5.    Give the gift that keeps on giving! Sharing the magic with a World of Coca-Cola Annual Pass means you can create new memories year-round.

There are more than five, but we had to stop the list somewhere. Visit and see why people all over the world keep coming back to the World of Coca-Cola.
