I love Christmas time. I adore all the tradition and enjoy the extra fuss we make, in an effort to make the season special. I want my kids to treasure the memories we make in our home. But I'll admit that I can be a practicality Scrooge when it comes time to actually pull the trigger and put some of these holiday inspired activities into action.
I could have easily talked myself out of the gingerbread house making, but I'm so glad we took time to create this masterpiece. It was a fun evening and the kids were delighted to play with frosting and candy. Thanks Costco for selling me a pre-assembled house and all the fixings.
They also wanted to make sure I documented their most recent ornament creations. Bennett is especially fond of taking photos and then looking at the back of the camera. It delights my heart to have a willing photography subject!
