I should have known how this would pan out. I got really into decorating my house, and the Bug was over it after about 25 minutes. It was fun to watch her stream of consciousness decorating. Her house is dotted with large white gumdrops. Her backstory (there is always a backstory) is that an old geezer lives in the house and the children of the neighborhood like to give him a hard time. So they throw large snowballs at his roof. So her house has at least 4 large white gumdrops stuck in strange places. She has a tree in the front with a candy cane resting against it. Mini houses need candy cane love too. After she finished her house and left my mom and I at a table blissfully decorating our houses...she made friends with a little girl who was there to help clean up after we finished. They talked about dance...the little girl had been in a local performance of the Nutcracker...the Bug likes watching other people dance.
At the end of this experience...I was the one who had to be hurried along...pushed into being finished...cajoled out of the building. So I think a merry time was had by all...even if we only had an hour to complete our gingerbread masterpieces!
to the moon and back,
