two days later.

yep, the gingerbread house was safe for two whole days.

then we ate it.

well, kind of…  that gingerbread is really hard!

so we all ate the corners off and put it down to attack another day.

well, jasper chewed on her corner more than she bit it off but eventually, she got it.

oh, she got it, all right!

and now we have a partially eaten gingerbread house.

i give it two more days.

we will eat you…

oh, yes, you gingerbread house, you…  we will eat you…  soon.

you may consider the house warned.

jasper lilith is intent on these tiny, little candy balls that keep rolling off the counter and on to the floor and under the couch or under the table.

The Gingerbread House and The Hand.

“momma, i might need some help here!”

but she didn’t – she managed to carry it to her daddy so he could properly admire it!

but first, she stops to take the balloon string in her mouth…  with her tongue…  apparently, it was an important part of taking the gingerbread house to daddy.

of course, once jon sees the house, he takes sadistic pleasure in threatening to Eat The House!

(when jasper saw jon pretend to take a bite, she shouts, “daddy, don’t ingest the house!”)

but never fear, jasper and i were victorious in our fight and we saved the gingerbread house from certain destruction!

for two whole days anyway.

rainbows and cupcakes.

one of jasper’s “best friends” is a girl named skylar and boy, do they make a team!

it was skylar’s birthday last week and her party was this past saturday – jon was good enough to take plenty of pictures for me!

(the momma’s do love The Jon, he is a Favorite of them in the mornings at school, at girl scouts and at birthday parties!  it’s really cute to watch.)
