Gingerbread Fun at the UAG

liberal with the frosting
Yesterday, Quinn and I took part in Lark Street’s Winter Wonderlark activities at the Upstate Artists’ Guild’s Gingerbread Funhouse.  For a (small) recommended donation of $5, we were provided with a gingerbread house and an incredible array of goodies with which to eat while we sat around decorate it.  You parents out there know what a pain in the arse it would be to do this at home – lots of candy, lots of unnaturally colored frosting, lots of mess.  However, in a setting like this, decorating our gingerbread was all the fun I had ever imagined it to be!  Quinn had a blast squeezing crazy amounts of frosting “glue” on to his property and sticking gumdrops, skittles, m&m’s, marshmallows, pretzels and candy canes all over, liberally sampling  treats along the way.  I really hope this is an  annual event, because we will definitely be back next year.
And – if you’re looking for something festive to do today, Sunday 12/12, head down there later in the afternoon for a holiday collage card making workshop.  Fun.

not a swanky clothes event

carefully trying to get as much candy as possible on the house

note that gingerbread boy wasn’t given a mouth.  i wanted him to be quiet.
