Blue Bell and the ingredients include cinnamon, gingerbread pieces, marshmallow and red & green sparkles. I didn't buy it because I already have ice cream in my freezer, but it sure sounds and looks good.Companies think of everything!
On a more somber note, I think everyone around the world heard about the tragic events that happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut. It was a very sad weekend.
So much needs to be done: increase funding for mental health care and mental health programs, increase funding for public schools, better contingency plans for emergencies and safety, and there's no reason why someone needs to purchase a gun that holds 100 bullets and can shoot a plethora of rounds in a short period of time. I can't believe gun sales went UP this weekend, after hearing all of this. It sickens me to see how many people die each year because of this. If nothing is done, there's only more heartache to come. It's sad. I dedicate this post to all the victims (children and educators). When I look at these little gingerbread people, I can't help but think about them and how they won't be here to celebrate Christmas.
