Friday afternoon when we got the kids we did our gingerbread houses. I rushed to get them built before the kids arrived so we could get started and they wouldn't have to wait.
The Trader Joes gingerbread houses are the BEST. We got them last year after I saw someone else blog about how awesome they are. The one we made last year never once cracked or broke.
This process was MESSY especially when you are trying to do it solo. I survived and they looked like they were supposed to, well minus the leaning trees. I could not get them to stand up straight no matter what so they leaned against the houses.
Dave and I were in charge of the icing, we let them tell us where to put it and we improvised a little bit as well.
Logan with his awesome house.
Alayna with her masterpiece.
We all four honestly really enjoyed doing this together, quality family fun. I also had Christmas music playing on pandora to help us be in the Christmas spirit even more.
While we were waiting on our pizza to arrive ( I was NOT cooking) they found the photobooth props and we took a few fun pictures.
It was safe to say we had a great friday night!
