Under Construction

On the 12th, Mom and I met Aunt Abby over at Grandma and Grandpa Herbert's to build our annual gingerbread house.
Building a GBH is an intricate procedure and involves a LOT of materials. GmaH was in charge of fabricating the walls and as you can see, they're pretty awesome. The challenge is taking those walls and connecting them so they're sturdy enough to withstand the decorating process. This is no small feat but every job is easier if you have the right tools. I'm not gonna tell you what our secret was, but I'll tell ya, this house will have no issues come tornado season, that's for sure.

While we waited for the glue frosting to cure, I was able to squeeze in some playing with G&G H.

GpaH decided to get down on my level and so some playing. And I cannot tell you how much I love that game. Dad's been spending a lot of time on the floor with me lately and we've been having a blast (check back in two weeks for those pics - HA!)
I had a lot of fun helping with the GBH and can't wait to make one again next year though I hope Mom is more careful with our secret weapon (she burned both hands - oops!)
There's a mirror off to our left and I'm getting a sneak peak of what this pic would look like

I've got a few pics from the 13th as well. AA and G&G H both made separate visits which was VERY exciting. I LOVE HOUSE CALLS!

I'm very in to giving directions to people these days. I like to tell them where to go and where to sit and sometimes where not to sit. I especially like to make people sit on our stairs. I make M&D sit here a couple of times a week and on the 13th, I tricked G&G H into sitting there as well. So fun!

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
Avery
