An entire town DEMOLISHED ...

By my precious children!
Small and Medium
The destruction was unparalleled ...

They ate most of the decorations ...

Leaving no home ...
or train untouched ...

Of course, I let them only eat off there own creations
and they mostly
stuck to that. :)
(Tall was mysteriously missing during the above photo shoot. hmm.)

We decided with the abundant amount of mice we are catching
right now (read: 3 in one day)
we had better remove any enticing food items off counters.

the Gingerbread was short lived this year,
enjoyed more, I believe.

Gingerbread Village and Trains, oh my ...

This is the top of Small's train.
He did all the detail work himself,
once Mommy piped the icing.

This year, we got a Mini village for Tall instead of 1 house.
It had more candy and different colored icing.
and each boy got a train.
This is Tall's Village!

Very detailed and creative.
"Goodnight snowman, I'll most likely eat you in the morning."
"Dread Pirate Tall"

Each house had a different cookie design.

Great accents throughout town.

The "I want sprinkles" walkway!

Snowman on right with purple border.
Nice icing scarf and buttons!

Small's Train

The "W" Car!

Medium's Train
Please note the beautiful face and
peppermint pathway!

the green icing is the grass
and the white is the snow.

Yes, those are gummy worms!

The "M" Train!

Gorgeous work!

We had a great night decorating... and then I put the children off eating it for a few days,
by not photographing until today! ha.
Yes, they pull the candy off them until they are stripped clean.
The boys will eat a few of the wheel cookies too.

Dearest Angel Baby Cadence Selah:

Dearest Angel Baby Cadence:

Hoped for you, prayed for you, discovered you, rejoiced over you,

went to the doctor and began looking for you, were were you hiding?

A few weeks later, finally found you with ultrasound!

Saw you!

Heard and saw your heart beating!

Wept as the realization of your incorrect location sank in.

Said Goodbye.

Wept every day since.

Love & Hugs,

Brokenhearted Mommy
