One of my most favorite traditions with the kids is gingerbread house making. We have done it since they were super little and it' the perfect way to kick off the holiday! This year had to be my most favorite! The girls are at that sweet age where they are creative and can enjoy the process. In the past, I've made the rookie mistake of buying the non preassembled houses. You know, the one with all the house pieces flat in the box and a big 'ol frosting pouch. I don't care what the directions say, you need to be an engineer to get that nonsense to stick and the house stand up! So of course in my busyness I grabbed the non assembled from Target. NOOOO!!! The directions assured me, this would be a cinch! Assemble in minutes they say! This was a 20 minute, two man job! Once we got the houses in order, it was go time and mommy could sit back and let the decorating fly. Peyton eats more than she decorates and Capri is very into excessive decor.
I had a great time making the table festive! I grabbed up sweet Target Dollar Bin pine tree and Bottle brush trees, candy jars and festive ramekins to hold treats. I can across this adorable sleigh serving platter and used it for our chocolate milks. We pumped our Christmas tunes and mommy's heart was full!
