Holiday Traditions

There are certain things my kids look forward to doing every holiday season. Making Christmas Cookies, building Ginger Bread Houses and decorating the Tree. This year I thought it would be a good idea to use a Ginger Bread kit~ well, it seemed like a good idea when I spotted it while in line at the Craft Store. I realized why my kids loved making Ginger Bread houses so much, because they can spend the next week picking it apart & eating it. They quickly realized that wasn't going to happen with this years house...because the next morning it was as hard as a rock! Here's a picture of our sad little house, I added some snow hoping it would help~ it didn't!

Here's my daughter with her Ginger Bread house from last year. I set up spots around the table so each one of my kids could make their own. Did you know that Graham Crakers don't come in the long pieces anymore?? now they're half the size...I found that out last year when I was buying all of the supplies for the Ginger Bread(Graham Cracker)houses. That's why her house looks like a little Adobe house. Next year we'll go back to making our own.
