Operation Gingerbread House

It’s not really fair to say I went all out with the Gingerbread House activity tonight since it came pre-assembled…. but let me tell you I made up for it in frosting and sugar coated goodness. My candy obsessed daughter was frothing at the mouth before we even managed to unpack the box.

One minor set-back… the conveniently assembled house was missing half its roof. While we waited for the super glue to dry, Emerson played with Christmas lights to keep her enthusiasm at bay.

Once we got into it, I frosted and E decorated. She loved ‘making patterns’ with the candy and all but a few pieces were strategically placed on the house instead of in her mouth. She was completely impressed when I loaded the icing into the piping bag and even more excited when the house came alive with windows and doors…. even though I had no idea what I was doing.

The important thing is that we had a lot of fun and for our first time I think it turned out pretty cute!

I enjoy keeping track of my daughter, who is the sunshine to my cloudy days, with this blog. This is my chronicling of life into the unknown: the joy I find and lessons learned along the way!
