Very Frustrating~!

Have you ever made one of these... This was suppose to be a gingerbread barn.. Oh my goodness. Had the front and back and sides all standing and frosted together.. We start to put the roof on and whoof~ it all falls down.. and then the back of the barn breaks apart in 3 pieces.. YIKES~! So I took the one front that was not broken and put all the other pieces back in the box.. In the mean time Ben is eating all the candy pieces and yummy yummy sounds... No problem we don't need all the candy that is required.. I squirt on the frosting and Tracie and I start placing what is left of the candy pieces onto the barn front.. we are laughing.. How do people do these dog gone things.. Ben is having a great time helping us and of course yummy yummy sounds are coming from him... Finally decorated ~ here is the picture of our barn.. Ta Da...~!

Picture of the box to give you an idea of what the finished project is suppose to look like..
YEAH~! One has to have a lot more frosting than is given to hold this baby together and then have enough to smear over the barn.. Well, it was an adventure and never to be tried again.
I don't know how people do this, but they do..

Here's Ben with his new hand held DSI1 Nintendo game,, he is playing Mario Race Cars game.. He loves it..~! I can see this game is going to have to have a time limit on how long to play..
Can't believe how smart he is and he can really play it and keep up with all the curves and pass other cars and come close to winning.. He has won but not too much. When I took this picture he wouldn't look at the camera..he just said "Cheese".. Lol. What a boy... Tracie and I call this the babysitting machine.. It sure keeps him busy ~! GranAnnie says we need to play board games Ben.. He says O.K. maybe in a little bit... Lol... Have a great Tuesday..~! ta ta for now...

Kids are much more technologically advanced these days than back when we were little. :)

Oh, Annie I ma so glad you did that post about making a gingerbread barn! I've always wanted to try one of those kits...but now I know not to waste my money!!! The picture on the box is adorable though! I wanted to get a Nintendo DS for myself but figured I'd hold out for a new smartphone instead! Did you see THE HAT????

Pierce got a Nintendo DSi from Santa. He likes a Diego game. Of course.

I have a very similar blog post from last winter when we tried to make a gingerbread house. Needless to say, it didn't go so smoothly, lol!

Oh...your barn is still beautiful (and still looks very yummy!:))
I think this would be so much more fun to try than a usual gingerbread house!
Your Ben is a sweetie...and it amazes me kids that young can figure stuff like that out! I sure can't:))

Bennie is too funny. I love that he will still interact with you even when playing his DSI. Have fun!

Haha Annie! Glad to know I'm not the only klutz in the kitchen. Your barn turned out just fine though -- making lemonade out of lemons is a true skill. :)
