Gingerbread houses and Mike as Santa!

Every year we make gingerbread houses! And it is one of my favorite things to do each year! Here are some fun pictures!

Mike was asked to dress up as Santa for the 3rd Ward's Christmas party. He did a fantastic job! He had a fun time giving candy canes to the kids.
Here he is all dressed up

Here is Mike passing out candy canes to the kids. He did great!

Good job Mike! He he he, I'm impressed with your ginerbread houses, I did one from scratch this year, and it was a lot more complicated than I thought (hope to post on it later).

I can't believe how much fun you guys had without me :( And is that a new counter in Mom and Dad's place? I heard they were doing some remodeling ... Anyway, great pics ... and I've always thought Mike would make a great Santa ;)

I love doing gingerbread houses too! It is one of the kids favorite traditions, but unfortunately we won't be getting around to it this Christmas. Way too much work for a tired mommy.
