To eat or to decorate...

Hannah couldn't wait to enjoy the holiday tradition of decorating a gingerbread house.
Their steady hands held the sweets in place until the royal icing did it's job. I wish I would have captured some good shots of the girls eating the candy treats. There was alot of candy nibbling going on, especially when I wasn't looking.
It's a good thing I had a lot of candy on hand. The girls managed to get their fill of Sweet Tarts and the gingerbread house could still pass Hansel and Gretel's sugar standards. I was a bit concerned we'd end up with a "non-candified" house.

Now that's an impressive holiday center piece.
