Christmas Memories Day 23

Tonight we read these books:

I stayed up late last night and assembled all the gingerbread buildings with hot glue. This had been suggested to me by my best friend, K and it was quite simple. This alleviated the chance of frustration for the kids waiting on the icing to set-up the next day. They were able to sit right down and decorate. Chubbles' house did loose its roof but we decided that it was probably too heavy for the hot glue and when she pressed slightly to put on the candy, it caused the pieces to fall. I was amazed that she did not get upset but that may have to do with the fact that she was too busy adding globs of icing to her tree and Santa pieces.

After assembly but before decorating...

Decorating fun...

And the finished designs...

Chubbles' house.

Lil Red's Christmas train.

Lil Man's Army base.

Legs' Reindeer flight school. It took her three hours to finish.
