Sister and her Mister hosted their second annual Gingerbread Affair at their home last night. Mother and Daddy-O used to let us invite a few girls over each year to do the same thing and it is a sweet holiday time memory for us.
Mother and Sister pre-assemble the houses to make it easier on the little ones. Perhaps in a few years they will be able to do this themselves. She adds to the candies to come in the kits and found the most adorable mini reindeer crackers this year at Target.
The four cousins had a ball gorging on all things sweet and adorning their houses. (Especially CeeCee… I mean, it will be obvious that she has the most attention to detail when you see her house. *wink*)
(We came straight from the first basketball game of the season.)
And now, take a peek at these sweet creations…
CeeCee: I wish I had a picture of the big gumball and marshmallow bow on the back. I mean, bows are her signature thing, for crying out loud.
John: “That’s Santa’s sleigh in the front. In the back is a candy junkyard.” (read: pile on as much candy as possible to take home for later) Note the marshmallow W on the roof.
Whit: “This just a gingerbread house.” (My ever so practical child. He also sweetly for a zip top back, which he proceeded to fill up with candy to take home for later.)
My littles absolutely adore CeeCee. I mean, we all do :-)
Now, while Sister was distracted with flying icing and candy rolling all over creation, I managed to sneak a few shots of her house which I shared on Instagram last night. It is so so so so so so gorgeous. I haven’t convinced her to let me do a home tour because 1) she’s a perfectionist 2) her house is not “done” and 3) well, you’d just have to know her to really understand.
With that, I’m off to a baby shower. So fun!!
