Our house is a very, very fine house........or maybe not!

We have the spirit of Christmas in our house. The boys decorated a gingerbread house. The house was a premade box kit....did you really think I was going to hand make a gingerbread house.! I assisted the boys in the creation. Little hints here and there but mainly it was there ideas. I think it came out really cute. I was proud of them for working together and listening to each others ideas. I placed the finished product on a side table for proper viewing by everyone that entered the house. Well later that night I noticed the gingerbread house looked different but I did nothing. The next morning I noticed the house looked really wrong. What happened?!!?! At first I thought it was sneaky children but they denied ruining their creation. Zane was a suspicious character but he nodded no as well. Then it hit us....the dogs!! But which one or all of them. Gypsy would have eaten the whole thing in one swallow. Dash(being short) would have knocked the table over trying to get at the house. Alex!!! She very sneakily was licking and eating small portions of the house....the icicles, the cany canes, the peppermint windows. Oh what a sad looking gingerbread house it is now. So the house is set highter up now and the boys still enjoy their creation...just less of it now.

What an excellent job the boys did!!!

I have to commend Alex on portion control! My dogs would have gobbled the whole thing up in two bites! LOL
