Gingerbread Houses

 My brave friend invited us over to make gingerbread houses. 

It was so fun to watch each child working in his own way.  The youngest one spent some time decorating his house, and some time quietly watching the older boys.

My boy filled his chimney with candy.

This boy liked buttering each piece of candy with the frosting.

 This boy loves color.

It was a cozy, noisy, messy, sugary, colorful, wonderful evening.  Thank you, my lovely friend!

I am so going to make these next year! I am determined not to chicken out... maybe just a Wilton kit?
