Our Gingerbread Creations!

I've been wanting to do a gingerbread house project with the kids and not only did I finally get around to it, I was also able to get "daddy" involved!

What's funny about the picture above is that I was getting ready to take a picture of him assembling his house and as I started to take the picture he was going to lick his finger and I caught Randy being Randy!!!

Here are the houses made with graham crackers and royal icing, along with the toppings of gumdrops, M&M's, Mike & Ike's, pretzels, and cereal.

Here is Jeremiah creating his house.

And Hannah and Micah creating theirs. This is right up Hannah's alley as she is our little artist! However, we were ALL having fun. Even Randy said he was having fun being a kid again!

Here are the front sides of our finished houses. From left to right they are lined up from the youngest creator to the oldest: Hannah, Micah, Jeremiah, Mommy, Daddy

And these are the back sides, lined up in the same order.

Mommy and Daddy's up close. Mommy did a log cabin and daddy added an addition to his!

Back side of Mommy and Daddy's houses.

One tired mommy (with daughter) who still has to clean up the mess and put these pictures on the blog! We had lots of fun though! A great family fun night, and maybe some day we'll make bigger ones. I thought it would be best to start out small and see how it went. I'd say it went pretty good!

Great! I loved ALL the pics, esp the one of Randy licking his fingers. After all WHAT ELSE do you do with frosting that gets on your fingers ?!?!?!? It was really fun seeing your creations. Best of all that Daddy could share in the memories made !!! Randy probably enjoyed building a house without having to be out in the cold and without a LOT of tools.
