Look what we did today!

Today as our home school art project we went to the neighbors house and made Gingerbread houses! Well, more like Graham cracker houses, LOL! With 5 kids it's cheaper and easier that way. So we used Graham crackers, cake icing (but Bren had a good thought when he suggested that next time we use peanut butter) sprinkles, Christmas colored malted milk balls, m&m's, candy canes, Christmas peeps and gummy swirls. My friend Dana and I helped the little ones put the houses together and then let them go at it with the decorations. They had a blast! And the end results were so cute =) Thank goodness I took pictures before things got too crazy though...another neighbor came over to check out the kids houses and while playing around made Kylee's house crumble! Then while trying to get a picture of all 3 of my kids Logan was being a brat hitting on Chase and when he grabbed for the table he grabbed the plate his house was on and it started to fall then crumbled too =( Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
Here are some pics...
Check out Brenden's, I think that's a Gingerbread Mansion, LOL! And check out that icing on his face!

Chase in the process of decorating! See Logan trying to climb out the window, LOL! And he did a few times after that!

The whole crew!
