Gingerbread Houses

I was quite relieved when Grandma mentioned on Skype on day that she was planning on making gingerbread houses with the kids because I wasn't feeling up to Christmas baking this year. So I didn't bake anything. Not a single thing. And the kids still got to make gingerbread houses!

Benjamin spent most of his time stuffing candy in his mouth as fast as he possibly could.



Grandma put the icing wherever Rachel and Miriam asked her to...


...and the girls carefully arranged candy on the houses.


We ended up with a cute little village, five houses in total. It might not be the masterpiece Grandma assembles when she has fewer "helpers," but those helpers sure had a good time and it's been fun to look at their creation this past week.
