Minor Casualties

We decorated Gingerbread (graham cracker) houses last night, or as Isaac describes it "a map of santa's house in the north pole."

These pictures are definitely not my best work. I actually almost forgot to take pictures. It feels good to be enjoying life so much, that I forgot about my camera until the last minute.

Ainsley's house, created by herself. . . with daddy behind the frosting work. Most of her candy had to pass a taste test to make it onto her house. Yummy.

Isaac didn't want any of his candy to be licked or eaten. Every piece was needed, and each had a specific purpose. By the looks of it though, those same standards didn't apply to Santa, himself.

Looks like a fun time. I love that Santa didn't make it in one piece!

So I wish that I could take pictures as good as your bad days with a camera. I really love that you not only take pictures of the kids themselves but also the activity. Maybe next time you are down you could take my family pictures for us. You are so good. Oh and the ginger bread houses are adorable. YOu are such a good mommy.

I love how pictures that arent your best work are much better than what most of us hope our pictures turn out (does that make sense)!
