See, I Can Be Fun. . .

SOMETIMES! The girls ALWAYS beg me to buy them one of these gingerbread houses. I usually say "maybe" and pretend like I forget!! I know, I know, I'm such a bad mom! I decided to brake down and buy them one this year. They had a great time making it after fighting about who gets to make what part! Of course, you don't see the after picture of the frosting slash candy fight. See that's why I forget!

*No, that's not our dog and yes that's their cute cousin Sydney!

What fun!! Pretty soon you'll be entering your gingerbread homes into the magazine contests.

I don't think you're a bad mom for not doing gingerbread houses in the past. I think you are a smart mom! It looks great!!

We went to MY grandma's house and blinged out our gingerbread. If you can encourage this, you will accomplish a few things:
Grama & Grampa get to spend time with their grandgirls;
Grama & Grampa get the honor of cleaning up the mess (and sometimes the kids are more likely to help THEM);
You could leave and do some crafts or something;
Make this an annual tradition with grama & grampa today!!!

Looks like fun! Why isn't that your dog? How are you? How is the house? My girls would love that, but I too would forget, even though they never do!
