Oh how i love making puns with my name. I will never ever stop, no, not ever. No matter what anyone says.
This year my mother really wanted to decorate gingerbread houses because she has never been able to do one just by herself what with her 18 kids and all. 8, 18.. it basically feels like the same. So she and i went on a mission to find the awesomest candy, anything you could think of to make even awesomer houses. And we bought the gingerbread house kits instead of making it herself which she should never have to do again. She, my dad, my sister, and Sean and I had our decorating party Christmas Eve and it was buckets of fun.
We took our decorating very seriously. All of us would periodically look over at Sean's house and boo and threaten to knock it down because he's so good and his house was so perfect. We're a loving family.
Here we all are, hard at work.
And here are the finished products.
Here's my pop's house:
And my mom's:
Check out the roof made with foam popcorn. Niiiice.
Here's Stephanie's house:
Here is mine.
and some emblishment. So pretty. He said he was going for an all white theme. And of course it is crisp and pristine, very Sean-esque. How he got his frosting to come out like that, i'll never know. I think he has magical powers.
And here's a view of the table.
Good times all around. Which is your favorite? No, i'm not competitive. It doesn't matter which one you like the best except um.. hello, coconut roof?? No but really, you can tell me.
I have some more Christmas pictures i should post. Maybe i'll do that in the next few days and then we'll move on... Hope you all had the best Christmas ever.
