In celebration of our last day of homeschooling for the year, I pulled out the gingerbread house kit and let the kids "have at it." I offer my utmost respect to anyone who would do this from scratch, by the way -- I just opted for the boxed kind (held by my sweet daughter Kathryn, who just lost her first tooth today!)
Thomas needed a bit of help with the frosting...
And here are five happy children after a gooey, candy-filled extravaganza..
Now, how long do you think this will last?
