December 9th

like I said. Sometimes the very best things happen when you go with the flow.

Tonight, we decided to make our gingerbread house. It started off well..the one we bought had an e-z tray for "e-z" building...the box had the instructions right on the back...nice step by step instructions.  Thought this would be SO easy.  Well, we opened the packages, and a few of the pieces were cracked.  No big deal. We "glued" them together with icing and proceded on to the next step.

Got the house "glued" together. Looks great right?

We continued to ice it (the kids love having decorations EVERYWHERE).  Justin put together the tree while the little ones took licks of icing, and then finally started putting on the candies...oh yeah...and Declan posed for some ADORABLE pictures...

And then this:

So Justin told everyone to grab a wall (or piece of a wall), and we had a decorating contest!

and then they sampled their masterpieces!

What a great night!
