I bought Gingerbread House kits (yes, the lazy way, but WAY less stressful than making the gingerbread myself) and the boys were super excited to make them. They kept asking me from the moment they woke up, "Can we make our houses now?" I kept telling them we had to wait for dad to come home. The minute they heard the garage door open, they started yelling "We get to make our houses now! We get to make our houses now!" And when Seth walked through the door they said "Come on dad. We're making houses now. Come on!!" Then I had to be so mean and make them eat dinner first, which of course they didn't eat much of. And just as expected, they had a lot of fun making them.
