Annual Gingerbread Houses

Every year about this time we go to our local library and make gingerbread houses with our good friends, The Olson's. The kids have so much fun together. It's a tradition that everyone looks forward to. We were trying to remember tonight just how many years we've been doing it....too many to count!
Lots of frosting and candy......
And laughter......
These two talk non stop!
They're two peas in a pod!
Just look at their faces....they're not staged at all! I'm not sure I "want" to know what topic caused Kirsten's big eyes and Miracle's disgusted face! LOL
Doesn't Rosebud look like she's quoting Shakespeare? Nope, just another story!
At the end we take a silly pic of all the kids and their creations. I couldn't find all the past years. I must not have taken digital pics. But here is this years......
And last years......
What fun traditions does your family have?

We love doing this too. Only we cheat and use tiny milk cartons for the frame and icing on the crackers. Shh, don't tell.

This is Rosebud,
It was very fun! We do the same thing as Mommyx12, but it is worth it! This year my mom said that we could eat everthing on our ginger bread house! But I couldn't eat all of it. I still have half of
it left. By the way it is Tuesday the 7th. Well, share what you think of what I am telling you about. Just to tell you I talk a bunch! You can probly tell. My mom is the best ever!!! And so are my friends. I just wanted to leave a very long comment. I think I have made my word, don't you? Just to tell you I don't usually get to comment on my mom's blog. Love Rosebud

I enjoyed reading your kids'comments more than anything. It shows how much they love you and reflects how good of a mother you are to them. What precious memories you'll all enjoy year after year. May you all have a wonderful holiday and God bless you all always.
