Gingerbread Men

When Three of The Most Adorable Granddaughters in the World visited last week I decided to make gingerbread men. Before I could get the ingredients out, The Most Adorable Granddaughter#2 decided to go grocery shopping with her Mummy, and The Most Adorable Granddaughter#1 decided she was going to help Grandpa and The Uncles butcher the deer they'd gotten the previous day.

That left The Most Adorable Granddaughter#3 to be my helper ... and she was more than willing.

However, it was a different story when it came time to decorate the gingerbread men. I was able to sit back and watch (after making my pitiful contribution in the decorating department) and let everyone else do the hard work. And hard work it must have been if the looks of concentration were anything to go by.

I suggested that next time I just make hearts instead of gingerbread men but was told that apparently that would be no fun. A shame because the hearts were by far the easier to make - and therefore more fun for me!

Yay, family pics :D I have already established that your granddaughters are cute and lovely beyond measure, but it never hurts to say it again. They are truly adorable!
Looks like everyone had lots of fun decorating gingerbread men, who, by the way, look delicious.

I'd much rather decorate gingerbread men than help butcher a deer, yuk. I do like venison though. Looks like everyone is having a good time.

Ohtawen, they were delicious. Thanks too for the compliments re the family.

SchnauzerMom, you make a good point. I think I'd rather decorate gingerbread men too. I tend to avoid the other process and avert my eyes if I have to approach anything resembling raw meat that is not neatly packaged in shapes not naturally occurring in nature (e.g. square-shaped parcels).
