Gingerbread Houses

Christmas weekend we finally got around to working our gingerbread houses. We bought one kit that Emilia and I decorated while Todd and Carson built a house from scratch.

 Emilia directed the decorating process for our house. I piped icing wherever she needed it and she embellished it with candy.  It was serious business!

Carson helped by sampling the icing to make sure it was sweet and sticky. He also helped his daddy hold up the walls and roof while their house was going up and was kind enough to leave some candy for the roof.

I don't like pictures of me while I'm pregnant so you're lucky to see me in one of the shots. My mom also happened to stop by at the end as we were taking pictures so she sneaked into one with her favorite grand-kids.
