A Gingy House and Cookies
December 25, 2010
The weather was not good for hiking like I had hoped. All the stores shut down for Christmas so we could not even go shopping on a rainy day. It was a perfect setting to spend some quality time with the kiddos.
Stewart took on the Gingerbread house decorating with the kids. Each claimed a side to decorate.
Fondue, icing, and candies, all became construction material. It took a little patience to get the icing “glue” to hold everything on.
Adam, using his excellent imagination, made a gumdrop Toadstool for the side of the house. He was very excited and proud of himself at how it turned out. Can you tell we enjoy nature?
Austin had the front, Anna-the red roof side, Adam-the yellow roof side, and Stewart-the backside. I think for our first ever gingerbread house it turned out very nice!
Next, we tackled the cookies we made last night. It warms my heart to see my kids enjoying themselves. Smiles all around was a good sign. We joked and laughed and had so much fun decorating cookies.
Adam was working hard, you can tell by the tongue peeking out just a little bit. The one thing I have to warn people that may eat these cookies, there was a lot of finger licking going on.
Thank you, Lord, for allowing us to slow down today and stay home and just be with our family enjoying the simple things in life.
