Gingerbread Fun on New Year's Eve!

Since we didn't have a chance to decorate Gingerbread Houses on Christmas Eve this year, we decided it would be the perfect way to spend New Year's Eve!

Snuggles was just as excited as last year, when he saw all the supplies!

It was also the perfect opportunity for Bud to wear his new outfit, specially picked out and purchased as a Christmas gift from his oldest brother! 

Rose helped me set everything up, while the older kids attended (and the boys served) an afternoon wedding/Mass in town.  

The kids were thrilled that two of their uncles, my youngest two brothers, were able to join us for the evening. 


Here are this year's finished Gingerbread Houses:

The Snowball Factory by Captain

The Cozy Resort by Rascal

At the Church for my First Holy Communion by Twinkle Toes

The Nativity by Chiquita

Little House on the Prairie by Snuggles and Daddy

Rose Cottage by Rose and Momma

Kevin's House by Uncle Kevin

The Golf Course Clubhouse by Uncle David

Wishing you all a very Happy and Blessed 2012!
