Christmas tradition!

Last year we made our first gingerbread house.  It was so much fun that we decided it would be a family tradition.

If you would like recipes, gingerbread house patterns, or just ideas you can take a look here.  This site has been helpful to me, so I thought I would share it with you.

This year we made three smaller houses, rather than one large one.  Each of the older kids had their own and Caleb helped Andrew.  After I helped them "build" their houses, they went to work decorating.   

Making gingerbread houses has become a highlight at Christmas time.  It is such a great activity to bring out  each child's creativity and to work together.  There is always lots of laughter, sneaking tastes of frosting and candy, and a huge mess - but most of all an evening of fun and memories.
