5th day of Christmas

Today was a great day because four of my grandchildren came over to decorate gingerbread houses. They are so inventive and their house reflect their creativity. Each one had an idea to try on his or her house and were willing to share that idea with everyone. They were able to "CASE" each other. Here is how the houses looked before they started decorating.

The geniuses at work:

They were encouraged to taste test everything! Licking fingers was one of the best ways to be sure that the frosting was tasty.

Concentration helped get the snow on the roof to look perfect. The snow looks just like that on the toop of my house today!

Sometimes they used a butter knife instead of fingers and if the frosting got on the fingers all the better to lick off!

Adding snow to the green roof with a peppermint walkway. How cool is that!

The completed housing project:

There is a "ham" in every family and and it was difficult to get them to be smile for a picture so the in the next photo they didn't have to be serious and they weren't!!

Here is the card for the fifth day of Christmas:

See you tomorrow!

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
