. . .this morning, bright and early, the boys and i cracked open our Gingerbread House kit. we had bought a kit at Target, when they first put the holiday stuff out - i planned to build it on christmas eve.
so i read the directions and got the dining room table all set up. The kit provides a website with instructional videos too!
i explained to the boys that mom would have to do the actual building. . .once that was complete - they could do the decorating. so with butterflies in my stomach and trying to keep my perfectionist tendencies burried, i built this:
not too shabby - looks cute, seems to be holding together well.
we opened up the little bags of candy - one candy cane was broken, but we had a spare. . .i also added some sour patch kids to the mix. . .we were ready to decorate.
i let the kids do what they wanted - i squirted the icing where they each wanted to decorate and let them put the candies on however they wanted.
they had a great time - and each seemed pleased with their results.
catch you soon -
