Gingerbread Houses

We made gingerbread houses today. 
In the past, we have always purchased a pre-fab kit.  They taste really gross, so this year I concocted a plan to make gingerbread houses from graham crackers, home made icing and lots of yummies candies.
Grace and I prepped all the goodies.
Noah even spread the icing.  Maybe he will be the next Cake Boss.
Gloria ... well, she just at the crackers.
Daddy and Seth worked together ... side note  .. Look at Seth's eye contact --- it is straight on!
Bub worked with design precision.
Joy was really concentrating here!  See Gloria still chomping the cracker?
I wish I could say Gracie stayed this neat.  By the end, I had to send her to the bathroom as she was ringing the icing through her hands ... remember the mention of home made icing?  Butter and sugar - I bet she has the softest hands in the house tonight.
Sammy did great decorating his little house.
Faith is concentrating too!
Hopie is trying to protect her masterpiece from Leah
(do you see the icing ABOVE her elbows?!)

Eating their creations.
