 A couple of weeks ago we got together with a few good friends to make gingerbread houses.  As you can imagine, the Rigby girls were into this activity, including me.

 If there had been an award for the kid who crammed the most candy onto their house it would have gone to Daisy who used about 6 times the candy that the rest of the kids did. 
Rocky on the other hand only decorated half her house before her attention span ran out.  She still got her share of candy in the end by eating a bunch of Daisy's house while she was taking a nap.  Daisy will tell anyone who will listen about the injustice of it.

The kids had cute little houses that Michelle made out of graham crackers but the rest of us had the real gingerbread.  Karen shared her family tradition of melting rock candy to make stained glass windows.  We had a blast trying to keep the dads from eating the Royal icing and trying to come up with new ways to manipulate the candy.
 Nothing beats having friends that are like family.

Oh, I love this post! Not just because I'm a slacker and haven't sent anyone pictures yet either! It was such a fun day. I seriously love our Oregon unofficial extended family.

Daisy is a girl after my own heart. I love her house. Let her she can tell Aunt Becky all about Rocky eating her candy. Can't wait to see you guys!
