On the twelfth day of Christmas...

MY TRUE LOVES GAVE TO ME:

a Gingerbread house


Oh my lawd, we made it. We made it to the twelfth day of Christmas (crafting). We have learned lots of things: how to make ridiculously cute garlands, fun fusions are more fun than Lego's, and that Martha Stewart crafts are a no-go. Sorry Martha, I'm just being real. Today's craft was no breeze, but we called in the trusty Uncle John to help us complete our gbread house. His skills extend to fixing broken toilets/sinks/light fixtures, lighting Christmas trees, fixing leaky roofs, AND building gingerbread houses. When I say building, I mean legit building. The only thing we did not have to do was bake the gingerbread. Other than that, it was up to our architectural abilities to successfully build the house. 

When I say "we" built it, I mean Uncle John, of course.

The directions said to wait an hour before attaching roof. 30 minutes sounded better to us.

We love candaaaay!

We are (UJ is) so artistic.

Caroline helps (by eating candy...) so we don't have to work as hard putting it on the house.

We (UJ) did it! Yummy yummy gingerbread housey.

I must give a shout out to Uncle John who, even when the walls continuously cave in, doesn't give up. Maybe he'll get an extra Christmas present tomorrow ;)

Ok, let's review our past 12 days of super duper amazing great Christmas fun-ness. Ready? Sing with me!
