We attended the annual neighborhood gingerbread house making this afternoon and every year I sing the praises of the mom that willingly hosts this annual event! She kindly hot glues all the houses together so the kids just show up and decorate. Really they eat two pieces of candy and then attach one to their house, eat another two candies, add one to the house.

It was weird to only have two elementary kids decorating this year. Cannon took his time and was meticulous about his candy placement. Briggs was decorating at a table with all his friends and they were all destroying their little houses so I was surprised when Briggs’ house made it through the destruction that tore through their table.

Pretty sure Briggs had more frosting on his shirt and body than he had on his house – but he was happy as can be!
