Gingerbread House

Caleb was super excited to put together the gingerbread house this year and asked to do it just a couple of days after Thanksgiving. This year the boys did most of the work while I mostly observed. I did help put the "lights" on around the trim of the house. We cheated and bought the pre-assembled house which works out so much better for impatient little helpers who don't want to wait on the house to set before decorating (who am I kidding, I don't want to wait on the house to set up and be ready either)

Of course plenty of icing was eaten during construction and a few candies ended up missing in action as they were also consumed.
Caleb really enjoyed getting to help put the decorations on by himself. Here is is deep in thought getting one of the candies ready to put on.
Silly Boy!
I think the boys did a great job and I love the little red hot hedge on the side that Caleb came up with all by himself.

Gift List

We were putting the tree skirt around the Christmas tree this morning and David asked Caleb what else goes under the tree. Caleb's first response was the nativity set he was playing with. David asked him what else goes under the tree and he finally said "presents" so then we started asking him what the following people below were going to get. Here is the gift list he came up with all by himself without any help.
****Caution, Spoiler alert*****
Daddy: Glove (meaning a baseball glove)
Mommy: Bathing Suit
Grandma: Milk Crate for your bike (?????)
Pappy: Star Wars movie
Grammy: Ginger Bread House
Papa: Toy Car
Nana: Bicycle and Helmet
