Making Gingerbread Houses!!

I always have this idyllic image in my head of me and my kids making something together, but I think I forget that they are 1 1/2 and 3 1/2!!! Not that they didn't have fun, cause they did!!! But I tend to have a less than idyllic time! :)

The house and all the goodies!

My kids cramming as much candy as they possibly can into their little mouths!

Chloe looks like she knows what she's doing here...
Too bad there's no frosting in her bag!

 Elijah getting in on the action!  Helping put the mini wheats on the roof!

 I love her look of concentration!

Eli must have got something good in his mouth!

The detail work!

Brother helping out!

 Here she got the frosting! Too bad it's thicker than molasses and I could hardly squeeze it out of the bag!!!

Our not so finished product!! 


  1. Oh very cute! I always want to make those too...maybe next year when both the boys can participate. Glad to have you guys here last week! But I'm sure you are glad to be home...I know just how tough it is with kids to be away that long! Hope your new year is fab!

  2. I am very impressed! Chloe and Lijah did a very good job--must get their craftiness from you! :)
