For FHE a couple weeks ago (that's how bad I am at updating this) we made ginger bread houses out of graham crackers. They were really easy to "build" because the icing is just like glue. I wanted to leave them out until Christmas for decorations, but as I suspected, many of them have suffered roof dammage and are missing their gumdrop shingles. Too hard for the kids to resist, I guess! Oh well, they were fun to make. I was quite impressed with Ray's skill. He had a masterpiece finished in no time at all. He says his mom trained him well. The kids also had fun decorating our "hodge-podge" tree. Many times I have thought about having a "put together" tree with matching ornaments and everything placed symmetrically, but I have decided I like our crazy tree, with ornaments ranging from a gold Navoo Temple to Chewbacca holding his weapon! Someday soon enough I'll have my perfect tree, but while the kids are little this one is just right. We decorated the tree right after Thanksgiving and only one ornament has been busted so far! We're doing great!
