Our Gingerbread House

So, we made a gingerbread house today. I tried not to help too much, and let them throw on whatever, but did have one issue with 'someone' using too many lollies. However, we got there in the end. Even if I stuffed up the sticking together part and the roof was distinctly bowed in the middle. Adds to the charm I say ;)

 Guess who is in the chimney?

 Ack, stop looking at that roof!

 What gingerbread family doesn't have pet crocodiles in the yard?

 Then, as every good scientist knows, what goes up, must come down :)

Oh, and Maddie did partake, she just asked to be kept out of the photos.

We got a kit Jen, $9.99 from New World, had to make our own icing and get our own lollies.

Hope Sarah does get down, Merr Christmas :)

It's so hard, isn't it? Keeping our adult mitts out of it and letting the kiddies do their thing?! And actually, I PREFER sagging roofs...much more charming...

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
