Little Houses...

One of little M's very favorite Christmas activities is making gingerbread houses. She starts talking about it as soon as Fall comes around...


Baby J wasn't sure what kind of nonsense we were making him do now. He took it very seriously…


Little M always takes her projects seriously…



When baby J realized that this was a whole house made. of. sugar... Well, he was MUCH more into the whole thing…



Little M educated him on the joys of eating gingerbread house decorations.



And she bossed the husband into squeezing her icing for her.



Baby J is not one to stress over placement. He's more of a "let it go where it goes" kind of man.



But the whole thing, especially the eating of the candy, made him quite happy. And I do so love that happy face!


Little M's house…there were some fondant trees in the front, but no one knows where they went. And by no one, I mean that the husband and I have no clue, and little M's not telling. Whatever, man, no one ever died from eating an aged fondant tree, right?



Baby J has no idea why the house is out, but we are not devouring it…

It's just a matter of time before those trees disappear as well.



And there we go! Until next year…

We were working on a gingerbread house and Brianna asked me if anyone ever actually eats a gingerbread house. Now I can tell her yes! My kids never want to eat theirs because they want to keep them to look at. By the time they want to eat the thing its been sitting for a month collecting dust. ICK. I have to discreetly move it outdoors to the trash can somewhere around New Years. Although, they have kept them for extended periods of time... like til March.
