we had a lovely weekend filled with the following:
making gingerbread houses, visiting the grinch at whoville, staying up late playing scooby doo monopoly and risk with our nephews, watching jude beat everyone at monopoly (true story), sleepovers, pancakes and homemade pizza, great worship at church, listening to christmas and johnny cash records in the basement, relaxing and coloring by the fire.
how was your weekend!??
To make the gingerbread houses you need 6 graham crackers, about 1/2 cup of icing, 1/2 a bag of skittles and m&m's, and sprinkles. I used string to hold the houses together until the icing hardened. I thought about using melted chocolate next time. arrange the roofs, ice, and decorate with desired candies. This was a hit. It was a fraction of the price of store bought houses, and they actually liked to eat the candy off the house. They each got their own to decorate, which is always good :)
