First Gingerbread House

One of the local hotels here hosted a Gingerbread House-making session today.  When we arrived, we were told there weren't any more spots available, which made the boys sad and me quite upset!  We were late, but not THAT late.
But after a little waiting, the hotel did end up bringing out more ginger bread homes.  The icing was a little trickier than I thought!
Nonetheless, the boys really had a good time decorating their first gingerbread house:
Ta da!  I thought it was cute how Charlie put his hand around Graham's shoulder for the photo:
Perhaps we should have looked at the ones on display first for some inspiration before starting on ours. Oh well!
We got to bag ours home and Charlie insisted on holding it in the car:
It's a good thing he didn't drop it as he fell asleep pretty soon after!
The boys have talked about eating it but I said there were too many dirty little hands in those candy bowls.  Thankfully they actually listened to me (for once!) and didn't fuss!  But I did say that perhaps one day we'll make our own Gingerbread house from scratch.  Maybe, just maybe - they will forget about it once Christmas day arrives and Graham and Charlie are too excited about their Christmas gifts :-)
