For the next few days I will post photos of our Christmas crafts and activities with the hope that you won't notice the lack of comics. Today, I present this year's gingerbread creation.

For those of you unfamiliar with our family, I will explain that our children look at freshly rolled gingerbread dough the way Calvin--of Calvin and Hobbes--looks at new fallen snow. The possibilities are endless and usually unique. Please refer to Gingerbread Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Temple of Marshmallow and the Gingerbread Castle.

This year's model idea started with Sierra finding a dinosaur cookie cutter. Marina kidded about Godzilla attacking the gingerbread city. You never kid about these things. Soon I was cutting out buildings for the cityscape in the background. Sierra insisted on a volcano. I thought it was a little far-fetched to have a volcano so close to the city, especially after Pompeii, but if you are going to have a giant dinosaur gingerbread menacing the good ginger-citizens I don't think you can argue against a volcano.

Here we have Gingerzilla chasing the gingerbread men in front of the volcano. I'm not quite sure why Cinnamonsaurus is there. I'm pretty sure he's an herbivore.

Run, gingerbread men, run! As fast as you can!


Whoops. Looks like one of them got caught by a fallen candy cane column. Guess we'll have to eat him.

Insanely good fun. You are a creative bunch.

And my interesting word for verification: dinest. Short for dinosaur feast, I expect.

I will never be able to look at gingerbread the same way again!

That's the way to make family memories. We tried making marshmallow snowmen, but they turned out looking like zombies. But I'll tell you, we had so much fun laughing and licking chocolate off our fingers. THAT's what it's all about.
