Little Chefs

Cricket jumping the fence to the candy castle.

Waiting for the fun to begin.

I'll help you Cricket.

Squirrel couldn't handle the pressure of working with the sweets and not eating any.

Just one more lick please!

Possum is proud of his work!

No. Cricket and I haven't lost our minds. We know it isn't Christmas yet, but we needed an activity to do with the kids and making gingerbread houses is something we used to do when we were growing up. We thought that we would continue the tradition with our children. Everyone had a wonderful time. Squirrel just couldn't stand the pressure of all the treats. She started with the icing on her fingers and continued on to the house itself. Memories!
The first two pictures are of Cricket trying to "break" into the candle factory. We didn't know it was going to be closed and we were really wanting some candy!!! Don't worry. She didn't commit any crime.
