Wordless Wednesday is hosted by the lovely ladies at 5 Minutes for Mom.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ and now for the wordful part ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Last night I presented the kids with 3 gingerbread house kits. Sure, one could be all crafty and homemaker-y and bake your own gingerbread, mix up a batch of royal icing… yeah. One could. One did not. I’m just happy to open the package and start assembling. Daddy had to work, so it was just me and the kids. Letting 3 big kids work on this project is hard enough. Had I made these from scratch there’s no way I’d have the patience required to finish them! Anyway, they smelled SO tasty that I hope the kids won’t notice the big bites missing the next morning. The kits came with packs of candy and large bags of royal icing. Each one ended up looking different. Against all the “mom” screaming within me, I allowed them to snack to their heart’s content, only reminding them to save some for the house. Even JC with his sneaky go-go-gadget fingers sampled the “glue”. They were all really proud of their finished product. The huge mess was worth the fun time. Can’t wait to eat them!!
