Gingerbread Theme

Making a Gingerbread house.

Making Gingerbread men at Selby Lights in Bloom.

The Gingerbread boy skit at the library. Benjamin was the Gingerbread boy.
After this, Benjamin now runs around chanting
"Run, run, run,
As fast as you can
You can't catch me
I'm the Gingerbread boy
I am, I am"

We made our own Gingerbread men.

My Great-Grandma Geddie gave me this Gingerbread boy when I was little. Every year he comes out for Christmas. This year he got to play Gingerbread boy hide and seek with Benjamin.

This is how he decorated his gingerbread man with the use of the craft box.

The front cover. The gingerbread house he designed at the Trim a Jan Bret Gingerbread house page and I just printed it out.

A better view of his coloring.

I also threw in a few Grinch pages.

We both enjoyed playing this game.

Trying to roll a gingerbread man can be quite funny.
