Saturday night, while hubs and a friend watched some football (and, might I say, even as a Mizzou Tiger fan, I was felt awful for the Huskers... ouch) the kids and I decorated graham cracker houses with some friends of our own.
The fun part is decorating them, right?? Last year we spent a lot of time trying to get the houses to stick together with mortar alone... but this time I took the advice from an article in the December issue of BHG and made right angles with the squares beforehand.
I melted some sugar in a pan and, when it turned brown, I dipped one side of a square in it and used it like glue to attach another. I let them cool off on a sheet of waxed paper. Putting the houses together from that point was super fast and easy.
Because it's really all about the decorating, right?
We had some leftover peices of foam core that worked out just fine for the bases.
And lots and LOTS of candy. Yum.
Babygirl and I had a few minutes to kill the other day before we had to run to preschool and get Fidget. So we had a photoshoot with a tripod and a remote. Happy Monday!!
