Gingerbread Making

Every day Elisabeth gets a little more heavy handed with her makeup application. Here she is after she and Amy gave themselves makeovers.

The fantastic four go for a group hug.

I told her to look pretty. Maybe this is a model face??

The kids decided to have a dance party. We put on some tunes and they got down.

But then we decided it was time to go for a walk. We even found some snow...

That was fun! But then it was time to head to Dave's house for a gingerbread house competition.

Everyone got in on the action.

oh, except Alexis. Just kidding. She played too. But she also ate some very delicious looking/smelling curry.

My house. Note the artful use of shreddies for my roofing. And the pink and purple candies. AND the birdhouse like hole there? Beautiful no?

The beauty of making your own gingerbread houses, is that one batch of gingerbread will make three houses. I am so making them from now on.

Taking a break from decorating to make a phone.

The Lyth's house. Beautiful.

David, Elisabeth and my house. In that order. Notice mine got hit by a tornado? Yeah, so sad. next time the roof will not be quite so steep. In fact, I may go for a fifties flat roofed look...
