Gingerbread House Fun

Elfie-and-Gingerbread-house
The second day that Elfie arrived, he decided to bring the children a gingerbread house. Both of them were really excited, Autumn called it a 'Baby Doll House' and Nathan was wondering why we didn't get a gingerbread train like last year. However, he really enjoyed making the house tonight, and even said it was just as fun as the gingerbread train we did last year.

After dinner, I put the kids in their PJ's and I got all of the gingerbread supplies out for us.

The kids loved the candy that came with it. Wow, I really hope they photograph better together tomorrow when I work on our Christmas card. I am getting a little nervous. Ha, ha!


assembly
The trickiest part is putting the walls all together. The roof isn't as bad. What made this EXTRA difficult was the kids kept shaking or bumping into the table, Autumn kept clinging to me asking me to hold her, hold her. Ohhh, it was quite a challenge. But, I got them to stay!

Our beautiful gingerbread house! I think it turned out really good... especially since it did not fall apart! Yay!!! I put one kids name on each side.
