preview

Today, we all, Riley (2 and 5/6ths), Declan (4 and 356/365ths), Colin (6 and 3/4ths) Annie, Michael, Becky, Steven and me (grown ups), made gingerbread houses and they are awesome.


I'll confess that Declan's is my favorite, but only because none of the other kids read blogs. If you repeat what I said to either one of them, I will deny it, and make sure that you get nothing but coal in your stocking next year.


Riley's is the pinkest, Michael's has gargoyles, Colin's has an awesome "tree", and Annie's has french doors.  Steven's is the most ambitious (he's an architect, it'd be embarrassing if it weren't) and mine has a house and a barn because I made all the gingerbread parts and the frosting and I want a barn in real life.

But Declan's has a red ice rink that is surrounded by flowers because, "they all should be."

Photo's of the finished houses tomorrow, but I have to say this is a new tradition that's even better the second year!!

That looks way more amazing than ours. You are so awesome!

That sounds like so much fun. And the supplies you had are seriously impressive -- easy to let the imagination go with all those possibilities. I can't wait to see the finished products!

I'm pretty sure the Albertetti/Millot clan would make some pretty fine gingerbread houses!

French doors! That's fantastic. And I love Declan's reasoning that "they should all be" surrounded by flowers -- so simple and so true.

Looks like a lot of fun - I made one last year, but this year with a new born I couldn't be bothered. Next year I will be sure to continue the tradition.
