Gingerbread House

I'm sitting here waiting for the kiddos to fall asleep so "Santa" can come so I thought I'd share or fun project we did today! Last night, I had to run to Target to pick up a few things and I saw a gingerbread house kit. "Cool!" I though, this will be something fun to do with the kids!! So today, we all got up and started in on it. It was really easy and really fun. I put the house together, Jason took pics, and the boys decorated with all the candy it came with. Even Sawyer sat up on the table and helped decorate! It turned out pretty cute our first try at a gingerbread house. Later in the day, I was showering and Jason was watching the boys. He noticed that Sawyer had slipped out of the bedroom and he found him in the kitchen.... on the table... eating the gingerbread house!! The candy was all GONE, the side of the house was caved in, and the poor little gingerbread man had no legs. SO funny!!! I'm glad I took pics before hand. It is just a funny thing that happened that will turn into a funny family story we can talk about for years to come! I think the gingerbread house will surely be a new Christmas tradition in our house.
