Gingerbread Houses

This week we knocked something off of our Christmas bucket list.  We built gingerbread houses for the first time.

They weren’t the prettiest things you’ve ever seen.  But the kids had a lot of fun…and couldn’t wait to eat the candy off of them.  Can’t wait to make this a yearly tradition!

  • Colleen - So adorable! I can’t wait to let Owen “help” with our gingerbread house this year too! It’s a tradition in my husband’s family for each family to make a house and have a competition!

  • Jodi - We did our’s two weeks ago and it was so much fun! Love this time of year!

  • Kristal Strong - How fun! We have a gingerbread train set we’d like to do with the kiddos this year.

  • Ashley @ Fancy Ashley - So fun!!! We started this tradition this year as well! Mine loved the candy part too! I think Teddy ate more m&ms than he put on his house! Ha! xoxo!

  • Glamorously Mommy - I love them! You have the cutest kids!

  • Sara - I think they turned out pretty well for a first attempt!! Ours were much, much, much more messy that we did at a community center for JLD!! LOL
