THE Candy House 2010

*indoor, nighttime, low light photos...not the best...but it still captures our little tradition! the super high iso makes the photos a little grainy! ;-)

We stayed in Friday night to create THE Candy House of 2010!  Everyone was pumped up...and sugared up!

I went to town making the Seven Minute Frosting!  It turned out perfect and then I iced the house down!

Hair got did the next mornin'!  It was out of control long...and hadn't been cut in 6 months! yikes!

Little Man couldn't get enough of that white, frosty goodness!

Then I let the kids go to town.  Sure I have dreams of nice, neat, perfect candy houses.  But then where's the fun in just going all out and doing whatever you want!?  And, of course, sneaking bites of candy every chance you get!

LOVED the icing!

Very serious about this....

PILES of sprinkles....I think half went on my floor! OY!

No method to the madness!

But LOTS AND LOTS of fun!

It now rests on the chest in front of the front door!  And surprisingly still all in one piece.  THOUGH, the dog, Lil, tends to lick little holes in it...kinda like a salt block for horses. 

On another new lens is having to go into the doctor! :-(  It's an issue covered by the warranty, but still, I'm going to have to without it for a couple of weeks.  BOOOO.  It couldn't have come at a worse time, huh.  BUT, I still have my trusty 50mm 1.8.  Not so fun for tight shots, but at least I'll HAVE a lens.  Anyone have another lens I could borrow for a couple of weeks??!


  1. oh what fun it would have been to be a fly on the wall of your kitchen that day!

  2. I think the pics are great and love this holiday tradition of yours!

    Sorry about the lens :(

  3. so cute. so which lens do you use most of the time? and which lens is having to be fixed? i'm ready to buy another!


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
