Gingerbread Houses and Tantrums Too...

The sugary and sour moments of the everyday life of a mom. The painful 15 minutes of waiting for icing to set before decorating. The big girl playing "momma" in charge of applying icing to the goodies. The three year old trying her best not to eat more pieces than she sticks on. The 16 month old who just wants to play Hansel and forget about the decorating in favour of eating. The newly perfected tantrums in front of a twinkling tree when his efforts are foiled. And then the three of them, best buddies, sharing in the "leftovers" with glee. There is nothing sweeter... well, the gumdrops were pretty sweet, but seriously, look at those tiny fingers snatching the rolling little treasures!
