Gingerbread Men

The boys had a great time decorating, and Aidan had a great time eating half the candy as he was putting it on.  Then after all the house-making, they decided to eat the finished product.  Not a great idea.  You wouldn't think it, but gingerbread house kits that were prepared in a factory out-of-state months ago and shipped to your local grocery store just in time for the holidays and decorated with pre-made icing and stale candies, well, just ain't that tasty.

Gingerbread house decorating also gives me great opportunities to take pictures without a flash.  And I just love taking pictures without a flash.  That's why they're a bit blurry, though.  Since I have no idea how to actually work my camera, my low light pics are always a bit blurry.  (Please don't tell my professional-photographer father and brother that I have no idea how to work my camera.  They would be so embarrassed.  And might take my camera away from me.)

Behold, the finished product (before the eating part happened.  I did the windows on the front):

Have a very Merry December!

The tattoos really set the mood.

I think Dane shows he's from the "hood" in the Woodlands with all those tatoos...he walks on the wild side.
