Gingerbread House

Sunday was one of the first days Michael has gotten to spend the whole day with us in such a long time! And we had the WHOLE day together because the Bears weren't even on TV! It was so fun to spend some time together as a family after he has been SO busy since Ana Blair was born. After church and a little "Feliz Navidad" lunch at Pelancho's (I don't know why I always want Mexican food right before Christmas...) we embarked on our gingerbread journey. We won't be winning any awards unless there is some kind of "A" for Effort award, but we had a good time!
Olivia would have been just as happy opening up the box and eating the contents

Okay, this picture was taken before we started, before the candy
Those of you who know my child well know that she is far from shy. Those who meet Olivia on the street would think she is the most painfully shy child you've ever seen. This picture is for those people. This is what I found jumping on her bed to the tune of "Jingle Bell Rock."
And who could forget my little Gingerbread Baby
My sweet girls after church on Sunday. My favorite Sundays of the year are the one before Christmas and Easter Sunday. I have always loved to see the little kids all dressed up in their special dresses!

I think your gingerbread house turned out great! And yes, the excitement was all in the eating! I'm just thankful I didn't have to bake and cut the gingerbread! Somebody's getting rich of the idea of a kit!
