The girls made a gingerbread house on Christmas Eve from a kit we bought at Trader Joe’s (of course!). They had fun putting it together and decorating it with icing, candies, powdered sugar “snow” and a little marzipan family.
Immediately after they put the last touch on the house, they asked if they could eat it. I told them to hold off at least until their dad returned home (he was out-of-town) and got to see it.
A few hours later Mike walked in the door and they ran to him… “Hi Daddy! We missed you! Look at our gingerbread house! Isn’t it cool?” Mike agreed that it looked great.
The next words out of the girl’s mouths (I swear) were:
“I’m going to eat the boy” (“E”) and “I’m going to eat the dog!”. (“A”)….. and they did.
