Annual Graham Cracker House Night

Yesterday we were suppose to go ice skating with Jason’s family, but unfortuantely, Heather and Allison were up most of Friday night throwing up.  Needless to say, the ice skating trip was cancelled.  It worked out pretty good for us though.  The ice skating is rescheduled for Monday afternoon and we had a night to make graham cracker houses.  We spent the afternoon going from store to store to find the right candy.  Jason in particular wanted a specific kind of hard to find candy that took us to 4 different stores.  But at the end of the day, we had everything under the sun that we could possibly want to put on a graham cracker house.  On the way home we stopped at Marley’s, the restaurant in the Harley Davidson store to get some sliders for dinner.  We also ordered a Black Cherry Vanilla custard that they forgot to give us, but of course we were all the way in Lehi before we realized we didn’t get it.  Bummer.  Anyway, after we got home, I made the frosting while Jason helped the kids cut the graham crackers to the right sizes and then we spent the next couple hours gluing, frosting and covering our houses with candy.  Kayla and Garion both had the goal to not only use every single kind of candy we had, but to cover the entire house and the 10 inch paper plate the house was sitting on.  We had a great time!  Amazingly enough, there were no fights, arguments, tears or tantrums the whole time!  The houses turned out really cute too!  The only problem now is how to keep the kids from devouring them all at one time!  But then again, it is Christmas, why not!!  🙂
