I have done houses with my boys in the past (one memorable year W's house was eaten by a dog that we babysit) but this year it will just be gingerbread men.
E was determined to make the dough on his own. Once it was done we all got in on cutting out shapes.
E had just finished reading Gingerbread Cowboy so he wanted to make his own gingerbread cowboy man instead of using the cookie cutter. See his big cowboy boots?One poor fellah had his leg fall off so, naturally ;-), this made me think of Monty Python's poor black knight. My lucky boys got to listen to me quote the Black knight (in a very poor British accent) until W finally ate the bit of leg in an attempt to end his mama's silliness. ;-)
"None shall pass", "...just a flesh wound" and "...I'll bite your leg off." My poor children.
