Gingerbread Men

Well, baking is progressive, right? Maybe next time I won't burn the gingerbread men, but this batch is at least very fun to play with!

M and I borrowed a couple of books about gingerbread men from the library and we decided it would be fun to bake some -- and see if they come alive like in the story! These guys are too blackened to be alive, but we have left-over dough in the refrigerator to try again later.

We also made up a really fun song, sung to the tune of "Jingle Bell Rock:"

Gingerbread, gingerbread, gingerbread man,
Gingerbread man, oh, gingerbread man,
We roll you, and pat you, and bake you today,
We hope you come and play!
