Gingerbread House Extravaganza 2013

Yesterday was the day for my favorite Christmas tradition!  Making gingerbread houses with my kids.  2 hours of family time, being creative, and eating lots of candy!  Even though we had a baby only a week ago, I was determined to make our gingerbread.  Caleb and Rebekah helped a lot!

I think every year we end up getting more treats and snacks!  Here's the list: Chex cereal, golden graham cereal, marshmallows (mini and large), candy corn, lemon drops, mints, chocolate chips, gummy fish, gummy flowers, gum drops, cheerios, raisins, seasame sticks, dried peas, almonds, sunflower seeds, dried mango and banana chips, chow mein noodles, sugar cubes, red hots, green colored sugar, Christmas sprinkles, Dutch licorice, random candy left over from the latest parade, and popcorn!

And here are the results!  Caleb and Rebekah were very creative and did a great job this year.  Joshua decorated a gingerbread man, then ate everything on him.  Then he put popcorn in his house, and just licked the frosting off!  He ate A LOT of candy!  (Well, we all did...)

This one is mine.

And this one is Kevin's.

Can you guess who decorated this one?

Lastly, here's a close up of Rebekah's snowman!

Today is time to celebrate with our extended family.  I pray you all will have a very Merry Christmas!
