Thought I gave up the project, huh? Well, I have 3 more posts left to finish out my photos for the project for last year, so I can’t quit while I’m so close!
This was our first time making a gingerbread house… even for me! I’m intimidated by actually baking all the pieces and buying the candy, so I decided we’d buy a kit with small little houses. Much less intimidating.
We had a hard time keeping the girl from eating all the decorations. So we told her she could eat 2 of the three houses we made together.
However, she’s such a good listener *sarcasm there*, later that night we found she had eat the candy off the other 3 remaining houses. She was quietly working on picking them clean while she watched movies on the iPad at the table.
Note to self – do not leave the candy in front of the child on the table if you want it to last more than a day.
I like to sweets. I like to bake. But lately the girl has been wanting to help with everything in the kitchen, which makes it a bit tough to bake anything as baking is more of an exact science than cooking.
Since she’s really wanted to help out, I decided I’d let her make a mess as we made sugar cookies on the table. She didn’t quite get the concept of cutting out cookies right next to each other and not on top of each other. In retrospect, I wish I had been that mother that simply let her continue cutting out cookies and salvaged those that were whole pieces. Instead, I was the more uptight one that kept barking out rules.
“Don’t put it there!”
“Put it as close to the line!”
“It’s not Play-Doh! Stop rolling it on the table!”
I really need to remember to have fun instead of being such a Grinch.
