In an effort to bring some holiday spirit into the house we have been trying to get some decorations up and do some holiday activities other than shopping. We decorated the tree. Wow photos in the dark really show how unevenly the lights were hung. Oh well, we’ll do better next year.
When I was at Ikea last month, just as I was exiting the store I spotted these gingerbread house kits. At first I grabbed one for N since I knew he’s enjoy decorating it. Then I grabbed a second one thinking that if H was around she would want to do one too. Well as it turned out we had a snowstorm over the weekend and we needed an entertaining project to fill the afternoon. We didn’t end up with what you would call traditional gingerbread houses. The ones above are H’s. She created some sort of war scene with wyrms attacking the house.
N went a bit more traditional, well except for the worms he has attacking his house. He did mention that the worms ate all the gum drops off the roof. After watching the hours they spent perfecting their masterpieces I kind of wish I had gotten myself one. Maybe I could have made a yarn shop.
