Scavenger Hunt Sunday Snapshot -- Gingerbread Edition

Today we had the joy of going to my sister-in-law's house so the kids could decorate gingerbread houses.


This gave me three hours to play with my camera.

It was a real JOY to take pictures of my sister-in-law's beautiful decorations.


Sunflower put HALF of her gumdrops on her gingerbread people instead of her house.

Aunt J decorated the house...leaving Sunflower free to eat candy and play.

She did take a moment to SLEEP, well for pretend, under the tree for me.

Cousin L's house was the most carefully decorated.

Though I love the WINDOWS on Sunflower/Aunt J's house and on the boys' house.


I'm sure every one will be happy to know that Sunflower is fully recovered from her head staples...if you cannot tell from her photos.

The boys are happy she is all better, too.


Oh, I had to get one last Scavenger Hunt prompt before we headed home, so I pulled a present from under my sister-in-law's tree...assuming it would quite nicely fit the "WHAT IS IT?" theme.
Though it turns out if you look closely you might see what it is.

I hope you have a fantastic week!

Love the story as you shared your scavenger hunt. Those gingerbread houses are so cute. I really love the joy shot, so pretty. And the "sleeping" shot is too funny.

First of all, what a great collection! Love all those bokeh lights... and that photo of your little girl pretending to sleep --so cute!

You are so restrained with your decorations of your gingerbread house --well-done! I don't think we could ever be that restrained over here. :)

love making gingerbread houses...we have not done it in a while because it always falls over and is a big mess...but the process is fun. My daughter has that same brown dotted dress..it's one of our favorites.
