I am NOT a Pinterest kind of mom. I don't do Pinterest. I have friends who love it and get great ideas from it, and I like the idea of it. But I know me and my own limitations. It would suck me in with all its creative splendor, and it would spit me out leaving only wasted time and feelings of inadequacy behind. Which leads me to our activity...
We decorated gingerbread houses yesterday. We were supposed to enjoy the experience with friends, but it seems the bug is spreading all over town. Our friends are sick and we all needed to stay home and keep our germs to ourselves. However, my kids were finally beginning to feel better and we all needed some help getting into the Christmas spirit. So I pulled out our kits and candy and let them loose.
The OCD in me wanted to decorate one that looked like it popped off the Food Network, but that's not me. It's not them, so we had a blast with all the mess and gooey-ness that came with it. Then, they took pics of all the houses with my phone.
After wiping the table...for the most part... Ethan's is the A-frame on the right...
