Gingerbread Mess


Spencer and I built a Gingerbread house this evening. I bought a kit for us, cause they had to be idiot proof, right? Well I showed them!

First of all, you have to have hands of steel to successfully squeeze that thick, gloopy, white cement they call "icing." They might as well call it candy glue.
One of our little gingerbread men was already broken when I opened the box, so Spencer decided to eat him. One bite in, he spit it out and thought I had tricked him into eating a dog biscuit. I could NOT convince him otherwise. If you see my son, please let him know gingerbread IS NOT dog food and Mommy was telling the truth.

We managed to build the house and Spencer decorated it with lots of candy-- it was fun! but... just after I snapped this picture, the roof slid off and collapsed. SO just in case you are wondering, the tensile strength of gingerbread icing is 15 gumballs and 4 spree.

I am so LMBO at the dog food thing, I will make sure that Spencer knows that it wasn't dog food! :)

lol, dog food. I love the roof coming apart photo, it had to have been that one spree.

ROFL - I so have this scene playing in my head. What a hoot! Next year I think you'd better make the gingergread yourself and Spencer can taste the "real" stuff :)
