Alice was a perfect hostess sharing her toys with everyone.
Christopher and Catherine joined in the fun too!
After some wine and smalltalk we got down to the business at hand. At first the kids just looked at the gingerbread mansion, delicately admiring it.
Glad their first instincts weren't destruction.
BUT when we showed them how to pick off and taste the sweet treats....
That was when demolition began. Bit by bit and bite by bite. Ty Pennington at Extreme Home Makeover has nothing on us!
Aili got the chimney and Connor loved the green trees with red licorice.
As the walls came tumbling down it was like a big edible pinata.
A fun, fun Sunday afternoon indeed. I wonder how many gingerbread destruction parties there are - probably not many. My stomach still aches from the laughter - and the sweets!
