Gingerbread men

I have wanted to construct a gingerbread house for years now, but I've never done it. Of course, now that I work at least 40hrs a week, I just don't have the time to attempt it, but luckily for us busy moms, there are companies out there that make these kits with the gimgerbread, the icing, and gumdrops all ready to use. So, this year, we thought it would be fun to try one and to keep my two children from fussing over who would get to do which part, I bought gingerbread men with 2 in each box so they would each have their own man to decorate. I divided all the gumdrops, candies etc. between the two of them and helped them with applying the icing and I think they did a fabulous job! They each decided, without my help, how to decorate each one. I bought two sets, and next we're going to do snow men, I can't wait to see what they'll lool like!

My kids want to make gingerbread houses every year and we always run out of time.

The gingerbread men are really cute. Shelby and Tad did a great job!
