When I returned downstairs a bit later, the house on the right was gone. All that remained were a few crumbs and the shiny foil base. I checked on the floor for it. I looked on the other counter. I then sought out my youngest kiddo. He quickly admitted to eating it. It was just too enticing.
Left with only three houses, we all pledged not to nibble. The next morning, we still had three houses. I gave my house to the littlest for decorating. He was pleased. With frosting bags and candy, the three decorated their houses. Each took a different approach glueing on the candies or making the frosting the major design element. There was also a lot of licking involved. They each tok their job of sampling the products seriously!
The finished houses were displayed with pride for daddy and the grandparents to see. Once everyone saw them, Benton set about deconstructing and munching on his next house. He eagerly shared with his siblings and anyone else who wanted a test. So, now only two houses remain. Eamon and Aine are hoping to save theirs until Christmas. I am not sure if Benton is part of their plan.
