GiNGerBrEaD hOuSes & sAnTa, oH mY!

Tonight we had our annual gingerbread house making and a special visit from Mr. C himself! we started the night off with my mom's awesome homemade clam chowder. mmmm..yummy!! and homemade rolls. thanks mom it was delicious!! then we started our work on the gingerbread houses, and was followed by none other than Santa Clause! the kids LOVE this and look forward to it every year. they all make them sooo cute and they do so good on them.

Brynlee working on her house. she basically did it all by herself this year. all i did was put frosting where she told me to. she had so much fun

heres Brax working away at his soon to be awesome gingerbread house

Ledger was having fun making his (although I think he ate a lot while decorating)

Bryn, Saylor, & Morghan

Porter and Hayden just having fun
Parker & Landen

this is where SANTA came. so all the kids are sitting there waiting patiently for their turn to sit on his lap.

Bryn was second to last to be called up. she was excited and scared at the same time. it was soo funny cause she would NOT look away from him for nothing! but she sat there and told him all that she wanted without crying! what a big girl she is!

Braxton telling SC what he wants..

Here's Porter telling what he wants...santa asked him if his room was clean, and by the look on his face he wasn't quite sure if it he was looking at me wondering what to say. luckily for was!! yea! (you can see Josh in the background there....he got to be SANTA'S helper tonight and pull the presents from santa's sack to give to him. he was super excited!!!
Brynlee got a pretty pink purse with a phone, lipstick, fingernail polish, perfume, (yes all fake of course) sunglasses and a phone. let me just say she was in HEAVEN!!

Brax got some finger skateboards

Porter got a remote control four-wheeler.

How fun! I bet the kids loved it and I bet there was a huge mess to clean up after
