"Our Gingerbread House"

I promised that I would share our Gingerbread house we built tonight. I was up to my elbows in icing and at one point the roof was sliding off....Carter & Noah started praying for the house and all of a sudden, it didn't move or fall. Gray was eating more candy than he was putting on the house. This was my very first try at making a gingerbread house and let me tell you, it is a hard job, but we pulled it off! When mommy & daddy came home from their night out, they were so surprised that we really did build it, especially with Gray around....but he placed each piece of candy so gently and wanted praise every time.....I had 3 very proud Boys.....We had a blast......
Gray, Carter & Noah are so proud of our Gingerbread house........

We had to put cups on the sides to keep the roof from sliding down until it dried......The boys can't wait to eat it tomorrow....

The boys look so adorable! Thanks for all your prayers with Capri! Your daughter was such a huge blessing to me. I am very impressed with this gingerbread house. I did this activity with my nephews and its not easy at this age! ESPECIALLY when they want to eat everything instead of put it together
