Holiday gingerbread project part 1

A lot of mom blogs are busy posting about their ideas for holiday projects that you can replicate in your own home.

This is not one of those posts. In fact, I am pretty sure there is no way you would ever be able to copy what went down in our dining room last night.

Exhibit A - What was supposed to happen. I once again fell victim to the retail genius' behind the pre-made gingerbread kits.

Exhibit B - Early on, we could tell that something wasn't quite right. Clearly the water to icing mix ratio described on the box was off. I think it looks a little bit like a rabid animal in this picture. "Look sweetheart! The Christmas coy fish is foaming at the mouth, it's like tiny snow filled bubbles!"

Exhibit C - Baby Bear went and grabbed the real thing for inspiration.

Exhibit D - Lightning McQueen busted after a bad run in with egg nog in Vegas. I may forward this one on to the Food Network so I can be featured next year in one of their holiday specials.

OMG! I can't stop laughing about this post. Thanks for brightening my Monday. On an unrelated, but somewhat related note, Nicholas asked me yesterday if I had a wood-chipper and some cheese so he could make snow in Mississippi on Christmas day. Okey dokey then.

This is awsome. It totally looks like Lightning on a bender. Merry Christmas!
