Full Swing Holiday Mode

We are in full swing holiday mode here at the house.


A few things I learned while constructing our gingerbread house:

1. These munchkins like candy. OK, I already knew that, but I learned that they like eating candy much more than they like sticking it on a gingerbread cookie house.

2. Gingerbread cookies break when dropped on the floor - especially the gingerbread trees.

3. Our dog, Maddie, loves to eat the tops of gingerbread trees. Who knew?

4. When decorated, it's pretty easy to pass off a "Christmas Bush" in lieu of a Christmas tree.

5. I cared much more about symmetry and order when constructing this than I thought I would.

6. The munchkins cared nothing for symmetry and order when constructing this.

7. These munchkins think they get to eat this "Cookie House Cake" (as they call it) after Christmas.

8. I'm debating if I should let them have a nibble or just throw it away. Would it be wrong if this is what we left Santa and the reindeer and they just happen to take it back to the North Pole for Mrs. Claus?
