gingerbread house making

 the other night we had our annual birthday party and gingerbread contest.


the theme of the night was 12 days of christmas.
we chose five golden rings.

this was not our house...

but this was.

and this is our "creative team"
i was working with the little, winston and blake. who were ever so helpful, and kept saying "uh-oh" holding up their hand with frosting on it. and i just kept telling them to eat it, it tastes super good. 
{sorry parents for the sugar high}

and this was the result.

and we did not win. shocker..... but the birthday girl did! the schneider house won.
their theme was also five golden rings, and they did the olympics!

 and then there's the song competition. which was so funny, as always.
schneiders "happy birthday to allie"
mulcocks/barkers "on the first day of christmas my true love gave to me, a house in sun valley"
leichman's "mama papa, i love you" jing-a-ling-a-ling-a-jing-a-ling"

and then will thought he was skinnier than he really is and tried to fit between two columns.

i look forward to this party all year long! it has been a part of my christmas for as long as i can remember. 
it is so fun to catch up with friends and make new memories.
christmas is the best time of the year and i think its because we get to visit with so many wonderful people
