First Annual Ladwig Gingerbread Party

On Monday we hosted a little Gingerbread House party. I pre-made the houses (out of Graham Crackers) and we had lots of candy and fun stuff to decorate with. Of course, Grandma Tricia's famous FROSTING!!!! YUM! (by the way, the moms discovered it is delicious to dip pretzels into the frosting!! So, Tricia if you have any left over frosting from cookies ya might have a daughter-in-law headed your way with pretzels!) Enough said... the pictures say it all!! FUN, FUN, FUN!!

(Hallie & Elli)
(Reese)
(Aunt Jess)
(Paula & Jess)

(Grandma Carmel-- yes, for those of you who know her... you would never believe the cute little house (and yard) she made. Maybe the creativity is coming out as she gets older???
(Kim & Ella)
The Girls worked so hard on their houses. They were very serious about it!
This is Jessie's house... the picture does not do it justice! It is a Masterpiece! She will have to come get it after Christmas... 'cause I won't be able to throw it out! She made a dog, a tree, a dog house, a blow up in the front yard... the works!! (Click to make it bigger... you gotta see this!!)
Merry Christmas!!!

5 friends had to say...:
