They are beautiful. But looking at them makes me feel the way I feel watching Elf when he eats spaghetti with maple syrup! I have an empathetic sugar coma!

Ha! I know! I could not believe the amount of candy that covered our table....which brings me back to the cool dad/uncool mom theory I have about how our family operates. I would NEVER have bought this much junk! BUT they had such a great time.

The houses looks so great! They did a wonderful job, and they look junky delish!

They spent hours on these and would have spent more if we did not have afternoon plans!

What gorgeous houses! All of the pictures are just perfect (and I love that there was a picture of you in the post too)! Merry Christmas, my friend!

They did an amazing job. We did not construct the house....our local bakery makes them to order and gives you a huge container of icing. I don't have the headache of trying to bake the gingerbread and I support a local business -- it's a win/win!

Merry Christmas to you too!

Have you all seen the show "Freaky Eaters"? There was a man on that show that put maple syrup on EVERYTHING! 3 meals a day.... he had done it for over 20 years. I don't know why I'm sharing this - just Theresa's comment made me think of it. Your houses are gorgeous!

What gorgeous gingerbread house! I am trying to get caught up on your blog. My computer is broken. :/. I am using the iPad when Kei isn't on it. The posts about Sandy Hook were so sad and poignant. I simply love the art journaling pages.

The one time we made a gingerbread house it was a comedy of errors! ;). Merry Christmas to you and your family Jess.

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
