What's your vote....

Which picture of the kids do you like best?
I bribed them with M&M's to get these taken. These are the best 3 out of about 3 dozen!!!
#1

This is our very first attempt at making a gingerbread house. I have been wanting to make one of these with the kids for YEARS! I figured out it's a lot harder and takes a lot longer to make one of these than I thought! There were tears, icing that was like glue everywhere, arguing over who was going to decorate what, a little girl eating part of the rock hard gingerbread roof than throwing the rest of it in the trash can (we had to fish that part back out), someone taking a bite out of one of the gummy roof decorations, not to mention spilling an entire bowl of itsy, bitsy pieces of candy (which resulted in one screeching mommy), it wasn't as perfect as a family memory as I would have liked, but hey, we all learned from our mistakes last night and will do better next year. Yes, I would do it all over again next year!

I'll have to say that I like the top one the best! We haven't gotten brave enough to try a gingerbread house, yet. While we were fussing over the candy pieces, the dog would probably eat the entire thing!

I pick #1. Your gingerbread house building sounds like my Christmas tree decorating time. lol Everything is fun with 4 kids.

Thanks for the votes! Now I have to come up with a Christmas Card with #1 picture. Maybe this year I'll actually remember to hand them out to people! :)
