We were VERY Christmasy this weekend! We froze our butts off getting the tree, we got it decorated, and come Saturday night I was up to my eyeballs in gingerbread!! It was actually pretty stinking easy, once I learned you roll the gingerbread right on the pan, and then just cut away what doesn't belong. So, come Sunday afternoon nap time we did a trial assembly with some incredibly stiff Royal icing.
I figured I would see if Zachary's held together before calling in the whiners other children who can be a tad impatient. It came together beautifully though, and the onslaught began!
My husband is a wonderful, wonderful man, and while I appreciate that he takes the camera from time to time, so that my children will have pictures of me, his picture taking is slightly twisted unorthodox...
limited to his own two bowls of candy.
But he settled down and got over it.
Now we have our own little gingerbread village!
