Christmas 2011: Building Houses

Over the next week or so, I'll be recapping the holidays.

Out of order, somewhat.

If you know me, you know that this is slightly painful. I like things in chronological order. When I print pictures, I like them to stay in the order they were taken.

Anyway, I have lots of fun things from the Fall and Christmas to share, but I'm probably going to be sharing them out of order.

Hopefully, we will all live.

Megan and Bryan visited for almost two weeks and one of the things my mom wanted to do was build Gingerbread Houses. It was something that was also on my Bucket List.

However, the chosen day was one where I had made plans to celebrate a friend's birthday with mani/pedis and dinner. I'd also just gotten off of work to start my vacation (Dec 21).

When I came home, they were half in progress............

Megan and Patty were doing a pretty good job!

Poor Mom........... Construction is not in her future.

Megan was intent on making it work.

Even though I wasn't there for the whole time, we all had such a great time sitting at the kitchen table. We laughed and laughed.... ate candy.... and made fun of one another's efforts, lol.

I got in the action by creating a resident of said houses...........
