Party! Party! Party!


It wouldn't be a Watson Christmas without making our Gingerbread houses. This year the kid all thought that they needed to have their very own gingerbread houses. So that is exactly what we did. It was so fun to watch all the different styles. Let's take a looksy, shall we?














Max ~ He was quite particular about his gingerbread house. He knew how he wanted his house and he wanted it just so.

Jacq ~ This girl was just smitten. I tell you smitten! Completely smitten with her new (soon to be) Uncle Jon. Between blushing over Uncle Jon and eating candy galore this little lady was one Happy lady!

Alexander ~ Yes! He built his house all right, but he was much more excited about sneaking drinks of diet coke and showing off his cute little bum. Where do boys get this stuff?

Barrett ~ Talk about calculating. This boy really put some thought into his junk yard of a gingerbread house. The more candy the better was his philosophy. He knew the more candy he could stuff on his plate . . .the more there would be for him to gobble up the next day. Smart boy!
These two ought to win the prize. Their house is pretty much amazing. Every single year. . .amazing. Bigger! Badder! better! Amazing!And . . .well . . . they get the good sport award. They showed! They smiled! They even acted like they had a good time! I just had to post a pic of my hot hubby! Love him! I don't know what Barrett is doing. . he has been making the craziest faces these days! No pics of me, but here is a pic of my cute cottage! I guess that's what happens when you are the one behind the camera. The houses maybe survivied two days! The kids devoured them the second they were done. Fun times!

Looks like a great time! We do gingerbread houses with Kevin's family when we visit there at Christmas time and it's fun to see everyone's creativity at work! Jacq is just getting more and more beautiful!

What a great time! It looked like so much fun and everyone's houses are great! Jacq is funny funny funny. I'm going to have to win her back when I hit town! It looks like I lost her to my new son-in-law to be! Good loss though. See you SOON!!!! Love You All.

Cutest Architecture and of course some pretty cut kids too. We did our houses after thanksgiving dinner and a week later they were falling apart because they kept sneaking candy off of them.

Thanks for the fun times sis! Ross is as bad as the kids, started pulling Necco candies off the roof as soon as we got home!

I remember a party like that!!! What a blast! The Watson's home is always definitely high energy - maybe it's the sugar??? No way! Coco Puffs are a treat for these crazy kids! Miss you all - "Far away Papa."
