The girls (Gloria and my two nieces) wanted to make gingerbread houses after Christmas. And of course Maggie (to Gloria) Mema (to the other two) obliged. I think they used an entire box of graham crackers, not to mention every decorative candy to be found at my mom's house! Well, maybe they ate more than they actually used. And I might admit to swiping a few graham crackers myself. Plus, she made cream cheese icing for them to use! Yum! (Which only encouraged my graham cracker swiping...and I might have even added a few chocolate chips to it at one point...)
Deep in thought..."How am I going to make this thing stand up?"
More intense concentration. "Come on wall...stand UP!"
I may or may not have suggested building gingerbread teepees after more than one wall collapse took place. To say they scoffed at my idea would be putting it mildly!
Three happy house-builders.
And the finished products.
But that was just the beginning of our after-Christmas fun! Stay tuned for more!
