Christmas Tradition: Revised

Growing up, we did Gingerbread Houses as one of my family's Christmas traditions.  I love this tradition, and I felt that it was important to carry on.  However, I don't like Gingerbread, and I always feel like it is a waste of yummy candy.  So, this year I decided to change it up a little, and I loved the least for this year while we are home alone.  We decided to make sugar cookies and decorate them.  Emerson gets to choose one out at night and eat it.  He was smart when he was making his because he piled on that candy.  Who cares about the design anyway when there is candy to be had, right? 

 Here is Emerson's finished product.
 This is all of our houses.  Now, I am excited to get to eat mine...
We also decorated different shapes.  Can you tell which ones Emerson did?
