Gingerbread House

I am short on time as of late (I don't even have Christmas lights up - just the tree, a wreath, and our mantle decorations), so I bought a neat little Gingerbread House kit for Tristan to help decorate.  He was super excited about it.  He kept bugging me about it when we got home but I told him that it would have to wait until his sister went to bed.

A familiar kit you find in just about any supermarket or Walmart you visit.  I even saw a gingerbread train at Albertson's. 

Tristan was absolutely proud of his creation.  I controlled the icing and he controlled the candy (for the most part).  That icing was so difficult to work with and I cut the corner a little to bit so being precise was next to near impossible.

Of course, Daddy had fun trying to "eat" the gingerbread house, while Tristan adamantly insisted he not do so.


About This Blog

My name is Mary and I'm a working mom with two beautiful children. I've worked for over seven years at a credit union, currently as an administrative assistant. Last fall, I went back to school and started on a Bachelors in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Elementary Education.

My hobbies, when I have time, include photography, sewing, photo processing, digital scrapbook, online gaming, reading, role playing games like DnD, and board games. But what I really love doing is just being a mom to my two children, Tristan and Melayna.

Tristan, whois four, is an awesome big brother and such an intelligent little boy. He loves Transformers, animals, Dr. Seuss books, and eating.

Melayna, who is one and a half, has definitely taught her momma patience. Unlike her easy going brother, she is curious and persistent. And if something stands in her way, she will definitely let you know her displeasure. Regardless, she is a sweetheart and daddy's little girl.
