Pre-Halloween Fun

Reanne didn't have school yesterday or today so I thought we would do something fun at home. I found one of those gingerbread house kits at Walmart...except it included decorations for the upcoming holiday. I tried my hand at the icing part but it is harder then it looks. It came out really thick and nothing would stick to the cookie. Despite the obstacles, I think everyone had a good time creating and tasting.

You are too cool! That is so much fun! Happy Halloween!

By the way...we are relandscaping out backyard. Go back a couple of times to a post about excavation and there is a map of what we are doing, sort of a plan of sorts....

Oh I know exactly what you mean. I did the same one with my kids and despite the struggle with the icing the kids had a fun time putting it together. I can also tell when Annica has made it to close to the house because she always gets something black in her mouth.
