The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads. And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.
~Clement Clarke Moore
Laurel's dreams of sugar-plums came true, we assembled our gingerbread house!
A little icing here...
and a little icing there.
Laurel doesn't like what Ian is doing to the house.
But finally she buys into it and helps out.
The kids had a great time making the gingerbread house. I'm sure a little bit of candy will be missing from it each day, and I will continue to find candy on the floor and sugar on the walls until Easter.
