Building Houses!!! (or eating them....)

One of our new family traditions is to create little gingerbread houses on Christmas Eve. We started this last year, and it was a welcomed back event this year. The kids were all a little older and really had fun. They each get a little gingerbread house and LOTS AND LOTS of options for building. A can of frosting each and off they go. What a fun thing to watch as their little eyes take a look at all the trimmin's and have a hard time deciding .... should this go on my house or in my mouth.

I think a little taste to get me started is a good idea....

I think I've got the hang of this. I can take it from here...

Lets see....where to begin!!!

Everyone busy creating their master pieces

Boy....I think I might need to take a lick of this thing. It looks really good. (and he did, but I missed it with my camera!!)

Ta Da...Perfect!!

We had some fun little houses when we were all done. I do think more went into little mouths than went onto houses however....
