We got together at my house tonight for Gingerbread houses. It was such a fun night. Here’s the party people. Mishy got “mini gingerbread houses” for the kids. Just the right size and a lot less fuss from the parents.
Our little family. Brian pretty much took over while I was on “Bridget duty”. If you have spent any time with Bridget you know just what that is. She is cute as a button but ready, willing and able to destroy anything in her reach-sight-vicinity. It’s actually amazing that I’m able to type this up considering the laptop I’m using had multiple keys ripped off the other day. Then after an hour or so trying to fix them with tweezers and cramped hands she got her little grubby mitts back on it to scribble with permanent marker. I keep reminding myself that it’s good for girls to have a strong personality and that she’ll stand up for what’s right when she’s older but as for now I’m just trying to survive. 😀 How I do love my little sassy girl and sweetest boy ever.
Emily and Dallen.
Such concentration! We decided Emily-although talented in many areas-is not gifted in Gingerbread house making. Better luck next year. Actually, it turned out pretty good considering the cave-in last year.
Marisha on the other hand, Miss. Betty Crocker, as you can imagine, was flawless.
Brian was hands on while I was shuffling about getting things ready.
The finished product. The night was a success.
After the houses were finished we shooed the kids downstairs while we played a very intense game of Catchphrase. Emily almost had a heart attack. We beat the boys although we were outnumbered 4 to 3. Way to go girls.
