Hunter's Gingerbread looks so good! He was very proud of it, but he just couldn't wait for Dad to get home before he ate it. It was pretty much eaten by the time Dave saw it.:)
The kids started with an empty milk carton, they frosted one side of the graham cracker and stuck it to the milk carton. I thought that this was a very clever idea because I have made gingerbread houses with kids before when I taught school, and we had a heck of a time keeping them standing. With the milk carton, you didn't have crying kids because their house had collapsed.

We had mentioned to my family that we were going to the parade, so they decided to join in on the fun.
Before they lit up Christmas Village, they had a little ceremony. We couldn't see it but we could here everything on the PA system. A little girl named Mckell was going to turn on the Christmas village lights, so of course our Mckell thought that they were talking to her. She was so excited. Luckily we were standing by a building that had a button on it. When everyone started the count down, Mckell was ready :) When we got to 1 she pushed the button, and all of the lights turned on. She thought that was the greatest. The whole night she kept telling Hunter that Santa was going to bring her lots of presents because she turned on all the lights for people to see. Isn't she the sweetest!
