Valentine Gingerbread Houses

Ava helped make gingerbread houses by ... sleeping. Now doesn't she look happy.

Ashlyn, Kate, and Alyssa dressed in my old t-shirts to eat icing and candies and yes, decorate gingerbread houses. I've never used a gingerbread house kit before, but now I highly recommend it. Also, I applied the icing and they applied the candies. I guess I'm a little controlling?

Kate doing some serious work.

Ashlyn spent most of her energy on decorating the yard.

Alyssa worked on making her half of the roof beautiful. After that, she pretty much just downed sugar.


  1. Hi M,

    Looks like fun! I got to babysit 3 boys the same ages as your girls, and I gotta say i'm impressed with how well you handle your girls. I love you, and I hope to see you soon!!

  2. So fun to see Kate hanging out with you guys! Looks like fun! And I wouldn't call you controlling, just minimizing the mess! :)

  3. I like to 'minimize' the mess too :) I just found some way fun Valentines crafts. check out these sites:
