Gingerbread Houses

November 25, 2010
More from our super awesome fun week with Carol and Eddie.
Before our big Thanksgiving Day feast we decided it would be fun to decorate gingerbread houses.
Carol looking cute, showing off her mad decorating skills.  
I think she had an unfair advantage, seeing as she went to school for interior design.
I think she was the only one who knew what she was doing, the rest of us were making a big ol' mess.

Yummy Icing
Clark took advantage of all the free icing he could sneak.
Taking a bite out of his house.
Finally he gave up sneaking the icing, and took a big bite out of his house.
I am pretty sure Clark had no idea what we were doing, 
but he had so much fun eating every thing in sight.

Such a fun afternoon, and maybe a new Thanksgiving tradition :)

I think you all did an excellent job on your houses. I love the gum drops you used along the roofline to simulate Christmas lighting. Or at least that is what I thought it looked like. Good job by all. Love you!
