Christmas Dinner


Last night we had a few friends over for a casual Holiday feast of sorts.  We sat and talked in the kitchen while the kids played around the house and wore each other out (bonus!).  It was so nice to hang out.  The dinner was mighty tasty and after we were full we made gingerbread houses!  I put on some festive tunes and we got right down to business.  It was a messy craft, but so much fun.  I always love seeing what everyone creates.  The kids were especially eager about this portion of the evening - they ate most of the candy before it reached their frosted dwellings.  


Our equipment


Ann's ginger-palace complete with garage!
My snowy cottage...
Adam's solar-powered gingerbread house.
Cache putting some last minute touches on his 4 story ginger condo (Cody may have had something to do with that...)

Morgan and her cute house!  Please note the candy in her hand and in her mouth...she's so cute.

Our Gingerhood

After we said goodnight to everyone, Cache wanted to sing through some of his favorite Christmas songs.  Here we are singing, "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas".  And now a hippo tops Cache's Christmas list.  Along with a dragon.  Awesome.
