I missed posting yesterday. It had been my intent to post every day until Christmas but it was a very busy day. First church, then lunch out, a snooze in the big chair by the Christmas tree then we made dinner for our favorite boy and his parents, and Uncle Art. Dinner was amazing, (if I do say so myself), grilled venison roast, roasted potato wedges, a wonderful salad brought by our guests, and pumpkin pie with whipped cream. And for anyone who doesn't care for venison (and that turns out to be no one in our family!) I made a Baked Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken recipe that I found on Pinterest.
Lord have mercy! It was super easy, fast and it tasted amazing. I made it with boneless skinless chicken thighs and I can't wait to make it again.
After dinner I whipped out this gingerbread house kit to decorate with my godson.
It was a blast. I had extra candies and chocolate chips for him to use. This was my first time making one of these, the end pieces came cracked so I hot glued them to cardboard. Holy smokes, who makes these things? I tried putting it together with the frosting, I really did. I ended up using hot glue to hold it together and warning him that only the candy decorations would be edible.
He was alright with that.
Sorry for the blurry pictures, little boys move so fast.
We sent him home at bedtime with the house he made and a bag of extra candy. Sorry parents!
In spite of how frustrating the house was to put together, I loved this project. It was nice to have a little one around to do a Christmas project with!
Do you have some littles to do projects with?
