Gingerbread Houses 2013

Earlier in the month I picked up 2 Gingerbread House kits to do with the boys.  We have done them with out much success before.

Time got away from us and it was a few days before Christmas when we got to assemble and decorate them.

The boys were really into it this year and wanted them to be just so {i.e. they wanted me to do all the piping and them to do all the decorating}.

It has taken me a few years to get comfortable with piping, so I knew this was going to be a good plan!

Most of the details were all their own and I was pleased that their creative sides are alive and well!NIK_4623NIK_4631NIK_4667

They turned out really cute!  This one is Miller’s

These pictures are testament to the old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again.”  The boys and I have finally made gingerbread houses that look cute. 

Now if I can just keep Miller from eating it!
