Wow... that's all I can say. 17 little bodies (2 kids were missing today) all building at once, lots of icing, lots of candies, lots and lots of energy! I have to say "hats off" to Scott's kindergarten teacher... she must drink coffee! Today I had the joy of helping in Scott's classroom with the building of gingerbread (graham wafer!) houses. The houses and roofs were already assembled, and the kids had the grand assignment of decorating. When Ms. C noticed that there was still a TON of candy left over, she encouraged each child to stuff their houses FULL of candy as well! There were 6 moms helping out today, and it was fun to get to know a couple of them better, as well.
Here are a few pics of the gingerbread house making process! I do think my son gets the prize for the heaviest house... he used every bit of his icing, and covered every inch (inside and out!) of his house!!!
While some kids went for the patterned and organized look, Scott went for the "mountain-of-candy" effect, and accomplished it beautifully, if I do say so myself!!!! (there is actually a house under all that sugar!!)
