So we made our traditional gingerbread house again. I cheated some and did not make the gingerbread myself. Instead I bought a ready-made (yummy!) package by Dr. Oetker - a famous German baking supply company that makes really good products. It was much easier than last year and the kids had equal amounts of fun. It came with the gingerbread parts and various candies and gummies for decoration. We added some of our own but it was a really good kit -- 3.99 Euros well spent!
Do you see this hand? It's Jacob's. I love his hands. He has the most perfect, wonderfully formed hands. I'm nuts about them. I'm sure you wanted to know that.
Wacky David. All those new teeth don't really fit into his mouth. He better grows some bigger jaws soon, orthdontics are too expensive!
Yes, that's a black cat on the roof. That's classy.
Guess what Leah did. She helped by making the candy disappear.
Caught in the act. Whoops. (Those red cheeks are from the cold outside. All my kids get these bright red cheeks when it's cold but it seems to fade with age.)
