Every year, Gigi bakes tons and tons of gingerbread so that we can have a day building our own gingerbread houses. This year we had 11 kids in on the fun! Things were pretty hectic while the houses were being erected, but calmed down a bit once the decorating started. As soon as Noah’s house was built, he went off to play in the living room. It’s totally true to his personality. He just could not focus with that many people rushing around him.
Griffin drew up his plans and then Ammon helped him execute them. :)
Griffin had so much fun deciding what to put on his house.
Ammon, as always, was so patient and let Griffin have total creative control.
Almost done! Just adding some “snow”.
And a little more…
At this point, we took some group pictures so that people could leave if they needed to. Here’s Gigi with all the kids.
Not sure why Noah is only wearing one shoe…
After things calmed down significantly, Noah decided he wanted to work on his house.
He had “spikes on one side of his roof. On the other side, there was a hole that they decided to make into a monster’s mouth.
Making the monster…
The finished product! See the duck-like creature on the side?
Yeah, that’s a monster. :)
Noah loves to pose…
I have TONS of silly pictures of him.
The kids had free reign on the candy. Griffin took FULL advantage.
After everyone else was done, Eva and I made houses. This one is going to Granny.
I wish my roof looked like this. It makes me so happy.
Thanks Gigi for a wonderful day! We look forward to it all year and really appreciate everything it took to make this day possible. We love you!
