Gingerbread Fun

While I cooked Thanksgiving turkey, the kids and Scott put together a gingerbread house. Here are a few photos:

The kids and Scott all had fun, but I think the boys' favorite activity has been picking off the gumdrops and candies every day since. Josh will bring me to the gingerbread house and say, "This one is loose..." In other words, "I need to eat that one!" This year's gingerbread house will not be a family heirloom, so we decided to let the children have fun slowly eating each piece of decoration. There are still plenty of candies left, so the gingerbread house fun should last for a couple more weeks.

My mom made real gingerbread houses every year for over 25 years. I loved it! She put so much time and effort and creativity into them. Two years ago, I too, began to make g-houses, but only with the kids. It has been fun to carry on that tradition and watch my children enjoy the art of it as well!
