One of our Christmas Eve activities was gingerbread house decorating. Granny had baked and assembled two gingerbread houses…all blank and anticipating the sweet decorations of my chillens.
Can you imagine their eyes when they saw the bowls of candy, candy, candy?
While Granny piped the icing, the kids gleefully stuck on the decorations.
Don’t mind if I do help myself to a taste of that yummy frosting!
Careful consideration of candy placement.
They made windows and doors.
A yummy candy cane door…
Andrew even made a skylight.
He’s having fun!
Everyone’s having fun!
Sylvie enjoyed some candy snacks between decorating shifts.
What pretty houses they made. In the next day, Sylvie’s house added a lot more candy. She learned that she was allowed to eat the candy off, so she wanted to put a lot more candy on. Smart cookie:)
Something tells me that we’ll be making gingerbread houses again.
Sweet, fun times.
Bryan got into the action and decorated a gingerbread cookie.
Which Sylvie wanted to eat!
Thanks for the fun idea, Granny! Gingerbread houses were a hit!
