Holiday Architectural Disaster

Today, these little elves came to our house to construct Gingerbread houses. The easy kind (ha!) using graham crackers.

Mr C got in on the act and designed this Mid-century Modern Marvel:

With her Mom’s help, Mia constructed this delightful cottage complete with a gumdrop birdy atop the tree.

And Milo and his mom fashioned this festive cottage.

These are going to grace the table at our Christmas dinner

Oh, you are wondering where the disaster is? Look at my house:

    Gerrie, once again you made me laugh. What lucky grandchildren you have, it’s one fun day after another!
    I’m not much of a gingerbread (or graham cracker) architect either. Jen
