With all the visiting with family and friends this Christmas, the kids and I didn't really have much time to sit together and make something really creative for Christmas this year. I thought today would be the perfect day to make a gingerbread house with the kids. I had always wanted to attempt this before, but was never sure about it. I am NOT very good in the kitchen, so it was a little daunting...but I think we all had a lot of fun!!!

|eating ALOT of frosting!|
|it's starting to come together:)|
|the decorating kept them really busy|
|It's done!!! Can we eat it now??|
We used a gingerbread kit my aunt and uncle bought for the kids for Christmas (Thanks Mary and Dave!)....it is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
It came with so much candy and icing....it was great. I haven't turned into Martha Stewart.....nor will I ever attempt to. But, it was really fun doing this activity with the kids...and it almost felt like it was still Christmas.:)
