Gingerbread houses

It's Christmas Eve!!  This morning, we made gingerbread houses with friends Kathy & Kasia and their kiddos George, Quentin, and Vivian.  What a great time!!  Kathy made the gingerbread and it was delicious!!!  Stiff enough to build a house, but still soft enough to enjoy.  So yummy!!! 

The kids had a great time "gluing" candy onto their houses!  Of course I think they ate more than they put on the house, but that's the fun of making ginger bread houses right?
Finished product ... Great job boys!

Vivian, Quentin, George, Jaden & Nicholas ... happy kids all on a sugar high!!

We came home, had a bite to eat for dinner and the boys had a major sugar crash!  We watched the Grinch that Stole Christmas and Mickey's Christmas Carol and I thought for sure the boys were going to take a nap. 

Instead, they got their second wind and decided to build a reading cave/fort under the stairs ... inspired by the one George had at his house.  Great idea!!!  A secret hideout with pillows, blankets, and a pile of books.  Genius!!
