The Small Boy’s Gingerbread Cottage, 2011

Last year, my Mom gave Felix a gingerbread house kit, and it kept him occupied for two hours, while he painstakingly directed me where to pipe icing, so he could place each of the hundreds of candies.

This year, she gave him another one, and we got to have her over to help with the decoration. With minimal stylistic guidance, and a little assist with the cutting of the walkway bricks and roof shingles, Felix has executed another masterpiece.

  1. This is ALL kinds of awesome. I was thinking of picking one up for Eddie for next week when we are home together. I am sure his will NOT compare to Felix’s though. Those are some mad artistic skills your boy has, yo.

  2. Katie will be delighted to know that her intended took it up another notch this year.
    They will get along perfectly, what with their OCD and all.
    I bought Katie a gingerbread tree this year and she was pretty underwhelmed. #lessonlearned

  3. very nice. We bought a kit that still has to be put together…guess I have a project for my vacation next week :)

    I doubt my girls will have as nice a house. My 3yo is more focused on eating all the candies instead of applying them. And my 5yo is pretty sloppy over her placement :)

  4. Felix did a great job! Your small boy definitely has a way with frosting and candy. We make a gingerbread house every year too. Since Amy’s birthday is in December, it was always the activity she chose to do with friends who came over to celebrate. Now I’m just thankful that at 16 she still thinks decorating a gingerbread house is fun:)

    And Cam, have you seen this? It makes Amy and me laugh hysterically every time we watch it!
