Decorating a Gingerbread House

Saturday night Jeff, Landree, and I decorated our first gingerbread house together. Jeff's family has always had a tradition of doing this. I love traditions and all things Christmas so I was really excited to start doing this with Landree. She loved it! She did manage to wipe her hands on her shirt after placing each piece of candy on the roof. She would dig her candy into the icing to place each piece. And she loved to transfer the candy from one bowl to another. And our finished product-fabulous!

So cute. I knew you had said that you wanted to do this, but did not know that you had bought it.

Landree looked like she had a great time!!!!!

We started this tradition too. Our local Children’s Museum hosts a gingerbread house workshop every year. It is so fun to go there – everything is nicely displayed and organized and you leave the mess there! We are scheduled to go this Sunday. I can’t wait!

How cute! I have to remember next year to buy extra candy. This year I just let the girls use the candy from the kit and they kept wanting to eat it all! We had enough but at the end we were stretching it! I love Landree's shirt! She is just precious.
