On December 4 we hosted a gingerbread house decorating party for our homeschool group. We had more than 20 kids over, in two shifts. Much sugar was consumed and a good time was had by all.
(I made a total of 26 houses...you have to have a few extras!)
Josh snapped this picture while we were getting ready for guests to arrive, I had to include it because I think it's cute.
Our first guest arriving.
Miriam uses mints as roof tiles.
A few of the houses lost structural integrity during the decorating process. Samuel chose to re-fashion his into a 'tent'.
These guys really put some thought into designing their houses.
I love this. That is a helicopter and a helo pad.
It was a lot of work but well worth it. I'm thinking this may have to become an annual tradition.
