Gingerbread House! Friday Foto.

So we have a tradition every year the day after Thanksgiving...  We do Ginger Bread Houses!  Now, my 3 year old loves to participate and glue the pieces together...  Helping every step of the way!  This years was a masterpiece! 

Ginger Bread House

I think more of the frosting goes in our mouths, instead of on the house.  BUT, they are a lot of fun doing them.  Over the next few years, I bet my little boy is going to take time to make it the way he wants it...  This year, was all about how many he could eat and how much frosting he could lick.  Can you tell what parts had a little finger in it?

And yes, by the end all the candy that was left, was on the house!

Do you have any pics of great houses?  Post 'em in the comments!
