Gingerbread geekery

In between shoveling snow on this day off, the kids and I assembled the gingerbread houses that we planned and baked over the weekend. Some pictures:

And now for the geekiness. My house this year is something I've wanted to do for awhile - a gingerbread Parthenon. Just a few pictures, here:

So that was fun. Hmm - I wonder if I need to shovel again?

Didja eat it all yet? ;) And, um, what are those little statue thingies around the Parthenon?

The ancient Greeks called them "little statue thingies." ;)

If it's parth anon, what is the other parth?
How do you spell "thingies" in Greek letters?
