on saturday we went to nick's sister's house for our annual
gingerbread graham cracker house decorating party. nick's mom organizes it every year. we each bring 2 cans of frosting and a bag of candy. nick's mom pre-makes the graham cracker houses so the kids aren't waiting for glue or frosting to dry and we're not dealing with walls caving in as they decorate.
as you'd expect with the kids, there's just as much candy eating going on as there is candy decorating, as evidenced by the frosting smudge on sam's cheek.... he's just like me, a sweet tooth the size of texas!
interesting how their personalities come out a little bit in their creations. jack is a little more of a minimalist. sam, on the other hand, has his house & yard loaded with so much stuff it's about ready to topple over!
