la casa de G-bread

Bad news: Justin's Packer jersey did not bring home a victory yesterday. Boo.
Good news: he knows if he's watching football he's always got a child who'll watch with him.

And it's not one of the ones you'd think...

Charity loves a little snuggle time anytime

During halftime of the Packers game the James boys made some gingerbread houses.

They caved in more than once...

and were made with incredibly sticky frosting...

that was (apparantely) incredibly tasty as well...

For some, it was all about the candy cane kisses

I would like to say this year's houses were more impressive than 2009

But I will say that we had a lot of fun getting powdered sugar frosting


Speaking of frosting...don't miss the Cake Boss' new show on TLC tonight (9/8c). Bakers competing with their fondant skills for a chance to work with Buddy. Well, that and $50K.

Poor Buddy tries to be all tough. But his sister? She'd make me cry. If your cake has issues, she'll tell you...and she'll tell you like it is whether you can handle it or not. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Happy Monday, All!



  1. He He! I understand the frosting. I have just finished scraping the last bit off of the floor from our gingerbread house escapade last week... and they are asking if we can pretty please make another one. Hmmmm.

  2. And that frosting stuff is like GLUE when it's had some time to dry. I worked in a bakery in college and cleaning the counters up after the cake decorators was no fun. You needed a lot of steaming hot water and a chisel!

  3. I think half the fun of decorating is eating all the yummy construction materials! Looks like you guys had fun.
