Today the little boys had such a fun time decorating the gingerbread house. Like I said in my previous post, I did not go into it with any expectations of perfection. I set up the island with various small bowls and containers with different colored candies. I put the assembled gingerbread frame house in the middle. Made some fresh royal icing in the VitaMix and put it into a piping bag. We put the boys high chairs up to the island and they were at a perfect height to get started. I started piping the icing but Ethan soon took over and you know what??? I did not sweat it. It went very well, he loved piping the icing, he had a few of his own techniques but you know, it worked. The roof got the most decorations and that was just fine. He and Luke had a good system. Ethan would put some icing on and tell Luke to stick the candy. Ethan said he was “working” it was very funny and they had a great time and despite the sugar rush they both took a very good nap afterward. When I look at the completed house with all its splendor, that is when it occurs to me, it is definitely perfection!!!
