Gingerbread House Tradition...Year 2

This was our second year to build and decorate a gingerbread house. Granted, it all came in a kit..pre-made and all I really had to do was add water to the icing mixture. But around here, the less work the better! Last year Carter wasn't old enough to help, but boy did he 'help' this year! We finally had to strap him into his booster seat to help avoid any 'mass destruction's'. He was very anxious to help, but very wild in his attempts to put candy on and was mostly in charge of putting the gum drops on the bottom of the house. Cooper and Conner did a great job at following my directions and have not stopped asking when we can eat it. I have a feeling it will be more fun with each passing year.

Getting the roof all iced up...and no Carter isn't wearing any pants, but at least a diaper.

Carter getting a little angry at being seat belted away from the action.

Now doing a great job at placing the candy on the roof.

Carefully and methodically placing the colored balls
on the swoopy pattern mommy put on the roof.

They really did have a blast and it turned out great.

The finished product!
