oh, gingerbread houses. we have a love/hate relationship. you’re adorable in so many ways, but a pain in so many others. lets just say that next year we’re going to be buying a pre-assembled house OR better yet we’re going real old school and using graham crackers with homemade icing. at least then we can eat the darn thing! if you’ve seen my recent instagram post you know exactly what i’ve learned from this little project. B UT on the chance you haven’t seen that post, i’ll just spell it out one more time.
all in all, it was pretty fun/ny. matt and i kept laughing at ourselves waiting (just waiting) for this thing to fall apart. we swear we’ll wake up to pieces in the morning. it’s still pretty cute because despite all my ranting — it was made by my little love. he did such a good job! he helped matt by holding down the gingerbread pieces while the icing was going on, and directing the location of the icing. as you can see in a few of the shots. mostly we did the icing, and he added the candy with a little help from mama. grayer enjoyed supervising, grabbing dadee’s arm while matt was in deep concentration –and trying with all his might to get a fist full of icing [which he happened to get at the end — including a lick of that hand! that was a giddy baby]. for anyone wondering, it literally took us 2 hours from start to finish. ha!
anyways, better luck next year!
