The "Gingerbread" House

We didn't quite get to the building of the gingerbread house (or graham cracker house in our case) on Wednesday, so we did it tonight. Travis is at work so he wasn't able to help, but last night he and the boys painted pictures with finger paints and glitter glue, so he was able to do some special fun things last night. (we saved him some candy) I think Connor ate more than he put on the house, but he enjoyed himself and that's what is most important. It has a place of honor up on the bar by my fancy nativity. (I have 6 nativity scenes. The boys call that one the fancy one) Now we are watching Frosty the Snowman and then it will be bedtime. Here is the final product. Getting ready to begin. Notice Connors fingers are already in the bowl of candy?Joseph putting his finishing touches on. Spencer just kept adding and coming up with new ideas. Connor is going to be dreaming of sugar plums I'm sure after all he ate!
Final product looking down on it.

I LOVE IT! We are going to have to do that for arts and crafts next week in our school. My kids think your gingerbread house is fabulous! Great work!
