Christmas Spirit, and a cameo by Dreamy Tim!

Hello friends, finally I found my Christmas Spirit it was hiding in my icing box... j/k but it did seem to come out when I started planning to decorate Gingerbread Houses with my niece Lexis.
This morning I woke up really early, cracked up the Christmas Carols, lit the Christmas Tree, and started a fire...then pulled out my glue gun..last year the construction process required multiple hands, extra icing and a blow dryer. This year I pre-assembled the house before Lexi arrived. All the decorations were staged, and the icing mixed and bagged with icing tips.

(I learned from last year which you can read about here).
When Lexi was 3/4 Tim decided to explain to her the importance of the incandescent light bulb... and due to his infinite patience, and understanding he has a life long friend, Lexi has informed me that Tim is more dreamy then Troy!
Last year we had a cameo from my husbands friend "Dreamy Tim". So this year he was invited by special request. We had a great time, decorating the house, constructing the chimneys, and in general just getting into the Christmas Spirit. Thank you Tim for joining us for today in our project. Not many of Babe's friends would have been willing. The pictures below are lacking Babe as he was on Camera duty... not to mention he was busy laughing at Tim's continuing questions to Lexi as to how the house was heated, and her perplexed looks...Hey Secret Santa, I even wore my awesome holiday shirt you sent me, we love how it lights up.
OK everyone, enjoy the pictures!

Look at the detail work, I know I told him to NOT take pictures of me.... he never listens!
There are some great pictures of Lexi and Tim though... They both seemed to have a really great time... too bad Tim bailed as soon as it was time for Clean UP!

I love it! Looks like y'all had a lot of fun!! I have never, in all my years, made a gingerbread house. I wonder why that is. Hmmm....

I'm not sure if I have already told you (old age and all) but I really like your blog 'do.

The houses look great. It looks like you guys made almost as much of a mess as we did carving pumpkins. Looks like fun!
