I do not take "before" photos of the gingerbread houses, but I promise you these "afters" are extremely different.
Our bowls full of candy and treats!
My little niece at work on her house!
Alani, (and her new, extreme make-over haircut which we all LA-LA-Love) putting a ridge of gumballs on her rooftop. (And yes, that is my preggy sister in the background wielding a bag of royal icing)
I am in love with Alani's snowflake trees and trim on her house!
Blakey accidentally knocked over a bowl full of "Christmas Nerds"....which went "bouncing" all over the floor! We all started laughing because these houses turned out to be one of the biggest "messy" projects ever! Me and my sister spent the night vacuuming, sweeping, more vacuuming and sweeping. But it was worth it...how much "messy" fun the kids had!
Alani's backyard and her little candy and candy cane sleigh she made.
And the best one of all, due to sheer size......my 2 and half year old niece, Sydney's miniature gingerbread house...can you see it? ha ha ha ha! Her yard got the majority of decorations!
Huge hugs and tiny gingerbread houses.... love and sweets from my house to yours, kandee
