Gingerbreading 2014

Let the annual gingerbreading begin! OK, we did begin way back when but then all the dough and cookies got eaten. (see November 22) I think that is a common occurrence in our household. I make dough/cookies ahead of time and then have to do it again because it has all been eaten up. You'd think I'd learn by now. But no.

So, anyway, I made the dough and the kids decided what kind of gingerbread structure they wanted. C10 wanted a wizard's tower and Q8 saw a partridge in a pear tree that we both liked.

C10 helped me cut shapes out.

And Q8 helped put them together

Until we got them all together. From left to right: A partridge in a pear tree, the Eiffel Tower, a cottage, a wizards tower, a tree and a rocket. I looooooooved that rocket. I designed that with Wallace & Gromit's A Grand Day Out in mind.

Mostly, we had leftover Halloween candy with which to decorate the houses ... but of course we had to go buy some of those raspberries/black berries, and some smooth & melties and some minty m&ms .... all delicious and reeeeeallllly essential on a house.

We had M10 & A7 over to help decorate. Love M10's hat!!!! And here is the decorating chaos:
