Cousin Gingerbread Contest 2013

Y’all.  I haven’t blogged in an entire month.  I don’t think I have ever gone that long without blogging since I started way back when Mak was three and Clara Beth was 18 months old.  And now I’ve got so much to blog that it’s a little overwhelming…so I’m going to take it a little bit at a time.  Our Christmas was wonderful, although I feel like it was done and over before we could blink.  I really like traditions and it was tough to fit everything in this year.  But this cousin Gingerbread Party/Contest is one of my favorites, and one that I hope continues on for years and years!

It’s so funny to see their personalities come out.  Mak, Tallon, Clara Beth, and Caroline are SERIOUS about their design and are in it to win.  Tess has fun for awhile but then loses interest, and even flipped over to Team Boy Cousins by the end of the party this year.  She did it just to get a rise out of CB and CC.  I find that hilarious.  Tate was just fighting as hard as he could to keep his eyes open, and Lilah Drew cared about nothing other than seeing how many sweet treats she could sneak.

Three year old boys are the cutest things EVER.  Don’t you want to just smooch him??

I love LD’s expression in this next one.  She’s all like “Seriously, People, why are we wasting perfectly good candy by gluing it to a house??”

The boys incorporated a lego ski lift beside their house this year.  Pretty impressive, I thought.

And Done!  Girls won this year for no reason other than Mak would not stop with the incessant pestering of the judge {Collin}.  Remember that for next year, Little Man. =)
