This week, we made gingerbread houses. In the past, we have bought the kits and then we
fought over shared the kit amongst the kids. You can imagine how that went over.
We found out last year that is was much easier to make our gingerbread houses out of graham crackers and homemade icing. (recipe at the end)
I tried to help Baby Boy with his house but he had more fun seeing it fall! He was so proud of the house he worked on though. It was the first thing he showed his Daddy when he walked into the house.
What’s really funny about the houses is that they show the personalities of my children. Each house speaks to the creator of it.
I smile when I see these gingerbread house!
We had a lot of fun making our gingerbread houses. I didn’t even mind cleaning up the mess afterwards…
