...the gingerbread farm...

The kids received a gingerbread "farm" from our neighbor for Christmas.

I had hopes to do something special for Epiphany, but we didn't this made until Yesterday. Gabe talked about this for days. We really wanted her to be able to join us, but she wasn't able. The weather was awful, so we decided that it was a perfect time.

We had a few technical glitches, but Gabe loved it. He wasn't quite strong enough to pipe the frosting 100% by himself, but he was in charge of the candy, Gianna was pacified with a few dabs of frosting on her tray. I love the photo where she is escaping her high chair. Steve jokingly mentioned that we should call it a Pinterest fail....he wasn't too far off. The red frosting had a hole in the bag, the gels were almost impossible to pipe. Gianna ate a few of the animal stands. The wreath started sliding off the barn before we were done. The kids ran out of interest (other than eating) before we were finished ;).

Gabe loved the tractor and has been nibbling a few bites a day.



  1. A gingerbread FARM?! I just love how it turned out even if it was an adventure.

    1. I know! Isn't that neat? I have never heard of a non-house one. So much cuter! :)
