gingerbread houses

Kate's class at school made gingerbread houses.  I signed up as a volunteer for the activity--just so I could take pictures, of course! (I did help out some, too.) 

These were actually graham-cracker houses on milk-carton bases, but that doesn't sound as cool as gingerbread houses. 

Kate's house had pet snakes playing in the yard. 

Kate's friend Emma was sitting at the same table, so I got lots of pictures of her too.

The teacher had a system where she would ring a bell every so often and the kids were allowed to eat one piece of candy. Seems like a good idea, though I imagine there may have been some sneaking going on as well!
