The Gingerbread House

We assembled our annual gingerbread house. It was great family time, and everyone got in on the action! :)

Daddy's side of the house


Adam's side of the house.

Jofus, Mary, and Jesus watched from afar. Gabriel jumped off and lost his head...seriously... We need super glue, STAT!

Pretty (yummy) candy balls.

This is daddy holding his tongue juuuuuust right. :)


This is Matthew not helping with the house, but stuffing his face with cookies. I can't even tell you how many he ate. I know. Mother of the year award to me!


See...cookies....
This is Adam's smile, after I said "Adam, please smile for me!" sigh.

We ALSO went to Bean's house today. We were supposed to be decorating cookies. That happened for all of 5 minutes. The older kids played in Bean's room. Matthew looked in every cupboard in the kitchen (and ate half of the food), and Sprout...Well... Sprout just went wherever we placed him. It was a blast, and good to have the kiddos together again (it had been awhile!).

Adam's favorite part of the playdate? I quote, "I liked jumping on top of Ellie, in her bed." SAY WHAT? ;)

I wasn't sure if I had the right address... so I'm glad that it made it! Yeah it's been too long since we got together, since you were pregnant with Matthew and we went to Tuttle I think... and you lost your keys, in your JCPenney bag lol! That was great! Maybe after the holidays or when it warms up a little we can plan something!!!

The house looks great! We're gonna do one this week, I hope it turns out - it's our first (but it's just a kit, we have to start small...)

So fun! I think we used a similar kit... but ours didn't have as many cool candies... I knew I should have gone out and bought some!
