This morning it was time for "gingerbread" houses! I say it like that because no actual gingerbread was harmed in the making of the houses. We have been using graham crackers for the past three years because it is just so much easier. In the past I have bought gingerbread house kits, and those are even easier, but our version works when you are racing around at the last minute to every store in town and they are all sold out of kits (not that I speak from experience or anything . . . ). I guess you could say my procrastination three years ago led us to a wonderful new tradition!
The girls and I picked out a few different kinds of candy. Every year it's a different assortment.
The next two pictures are Matt and Iris's house. It is a boathouse. It appears there is a party going on, lots of gummy bears wearing marshmallow hats!
Below is Eloise and my house. It is a cabin with an ocean and a boat.
Iris decided to connect them both.
My silly monkeys!
Merry Christmas Eve, Eve!
