The House the Boys Built

What to do with 5 boys couped up on a RAINY, but glorious {school was unexpectedly cancelled}day?

A trip to Sam's Club for a Nathan's hot dog lunch with a soda{exciting} and...
to purchase a gingerbread house kit. We had been eying it for weeks.

We got home and I let the boys go to town! No design help from me...as you can plainly see!! When they were done I think they had used every little bit of sugary decor in the kit and whatever else they could find in the house. It was a gooby, gobie, delightful mess!!

The oldest 4 took a side and Cannon was just happy to sample the building supplies!

How fun!! Too bad Gabe couldn't have come over too and been Cannon's little pal during the whole thing! he would have loved to watch the boys build that... and taste the goodies with his cousins! haha! Love those boys!

We love building gingerbread houses at our house too! Looks like a fun 'rainy-day' project! As I was looking at this post, Natalie rested her head on my shoulder and quietly said, "I really miss them." She said what I was thinking!!

Sounds like a blast! I love that last little picture of Cannon. And I can just imagine him helping out by sampling all those supplies. :)
