crop happens…

Caught In A Blizzard

A blizzard of icing, that is!
The girls got to build wooden gingerbread houses at Lowes Saturday morning and kept insisting that gingerbread houses are supposed to be made out of gingerbread… so on Sunday, we looked for a gingerbread house kit for the girls, but all we could find were the trees. I mixed the icing and put it on the pieces while they stacked them up, and then let them do the rest. 
Well, this is what it ended up looking like…. if you look really close, you can see that there is gingerbread under all that icing. There is supposed to be a little candy star  on top of the tree, but they said it kept falling over so they left it laying down….. and drowned it in icing!
As soon as they were done, Sara came running and asked “can we eat it now?…. Oh wait, pictures!…. Mommy, can you take some pictures?” 


They did get to eat some of it after dinner.

  1. How fun! I saw these at walmart the other day, I’m going to have to pick one up. Last year we did the gingerbread house and L really liked it. So…how much of it did you eat? 😉

  2. You might be better off going to Michaels, or checking the Wal-Mart down there. We could only find this one box at the Wal-Mart here in town yesterday.
    Not sure how much the kids ate yesterday. I only had a couple small pieces… with all the icing scraped off.

    Oh that looks so yummy! We did the gingerbread house last year and it was such a pain. Not sure if I can handle that this year.

  4. Hi Ashley! 🙂
    Yeah, I’m glad we got the tree. The icing was a little runny and I’m not sure how the gingerbread house would have turned out.

  9. LOL That is so adorable. I learned that I am not a fan of gingerbread. Or more like my histamines are not a fan. I had it for the first time a couple weeks ago and my lips and insides of my cheeks started itching like MAD!

    Cute picture!

    Love your bokeh!

    The tree does look pain free. We have a gingerbread house waiting for this coming weekend. Can’t wait to see how it goes! I hope it looks as fun as yours does!
