As I mentioned in my Gingerbread House Day post, my plans to decorate a cookie house with my niece fell through, so I drafted my friend Mike to help me in the endeavor.
Here are some highlights
Mike: So I’m filling in for an eight year old?
Mike: Good, because that’s about my skill level.
Amanda: We have that in common. But there’s a kit. I mean, how hard can it be?
Mike: Ok, this first step isn’t too bad. The icing is like a glue, and the pieces fit together in the grooves.
Amanda: No problem.
Mike: What are you doing there?
Amanda: I’m making icicles.
Mike: Is that what those are?
Amanda: Of course. What do they look like?
Mike: You don’t want me to answer that.
Amanda: Now we just fill in the little grooves. It’s like staying in the lines in a coloring book.
Mike: Are you good at staying in the lines in a coloring book?
Amanda: No. Are you?
Mike: Definitely not.
Amanda: We’ll take turns.
Amanda: Let’s just follow the pattern on the box.
Mike: Easy enough.
Amanda: Wait, are we off on the pattern? How did that happen?
Mike: Um, it’s kind of hard to tell where the candy goes. Maybe it’s because we didn’t stay in the lines.
Amanda: Entirely possible. Um…ok, so it’s a little abstract. That’s cool.
Mike: Are you eating the chocolate chips?
Amanda: No. Yes. Just a couple.
Mike: What if we run out?
Amanda: I have some M&Ms around here somewhere. We could use those.
Mike: Or we could use the chocolate chips and you could eat the M&Ms.
Amanda: Shut up.
Mike: Well, it’s…finished.
Amanda: It doesn’t exactly look like the box, but it isn’t too bad. Especially from across the room.
Mike: It looks pretty good for a couple of eight year olds.
Amanda: Yeah, let’s go with that.
Note: That last image was a great idea from John, an awesome fellow blogger. Gnomezilla is very interested in my creation. Lol.
