A Gingerbread House... Finally

We have been super busy this month and finally, FINALLY today we got to the gingerbread house we bought a week and a half ago. Lucy in particular has been beyond excited to decorate the gingerbread house.

Thankfully the houses came already made this year from Costco. That was the hardest part of the whole project in the past. So Eric was particularly glad to avoid that piece of it.

A whole slew of excited munchkins!

To keep the fighting to a minimum we separated the candy into individual bowls for each kid. After many many years of they got to put more of the gumdrops on! fighting I have learned to keep it even.

Reid spent the first half of the time eating the candy rather than putting it on the house. I think he was confused with what we were doing.

Zane was meticulous with his candy placement and actually ended up being the last kid with candy left to place. Totally out of character for him. He usually just dumps the candy and moves on to something else.

Finally Reid figured out the candy was supposed to go ON the house rather than in his mouth. Although I think about half of his candy was sucked on before it got placed. No strangers will be eating the candy off this house!
