Gingerbread fun

Even though we still had one or two sick ones, we decided to do something fun today with the well ones. We took out our gingerbread house and got decorating! Last week, while shopping in Target, I came across one of those gingerbread house kits that was pre-built, as in-all put together for you! The only thing you do is decorate it with the candies (the fun part). I remember from years past that it was always very frustrating trying to "glue" the pieces together, and then you had to wait for it to dry before decorating-not easy with little ones! So this was a perfect fit for us. Here they are putting the frosting on...

And more frosting!

Who's this goofball?

Here's the end result. Quite cute-and they did it entirely themselves! I think a few of the candies didn't quite make it to the house, but that's okay. It was a fun time!
