Gingerbread men. I have had the taste for these little fellas all week, and it was about time my fingers walked the talk. Besides there is nothing the monkeys like more, than helping to make biscuits.
We have these funny little gingerbread men cut outs with an arm or leg missing- although the boys just think some one has been tucking into their biscuits.
Biscuits should be their middle names. The hint of a biscuit and the older monkey is clambering all over me to get in on the biscuit action. This is done with shouts of “Glook! Glook!” (what the little monkey calls biscuits) as he shoves them in as quick as possible, as obviously the quicker he eats them the more he gets (or so he thinks).
This is then followed by their dear father, muttering “I feel like biscuits” as the monkeys go to bed and quiet time ensues. Quiet time except for the persistent grumble of a stomach only hungry for biscuits.
Actually…. Maybe biscuit should be our family name.
Very cute…sweet sad face on the armless little man!
Thanks for taking the time to look.
Very cute indeed! The bottom one reminds me a bit of Gumby.. 🙂
A startled Gumby who has just seen the drooling child who is going to eat him.
Too cute! I can’t believe you have gingerbread men cutouts like that, I love it! I must track some down 🙂
That top guy is hilarious. I love it when the babies jam stuff in their mouths. Why is that so endearing?
Alisa- I was given my cut outs but I think you can get them on ebay. They are funny.
Julia- I’m not sure why either. I guess its because they are yours and you just love them so darn much!
Clearly my children were born into the wrong family- they love biscuits… I NEVER make them (or buy them for that matter).
Felix still talks about making them at your house…. for pete’s sake, it was months and months ago!
Only just checked out your blog. Nice one.
