Our First Gingerbread House

This year I decided to get a Gingerbread house for us to decorate. I figured the kids were old enough to enjoy it and it was one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time growing up.

Mom and Dad helped with the frosting and then Tyler did the decorating with the candy.IMG_0107 He was very careful with his placement of the little candies, he didn’t want any of the same colors next to each other.IMG_0110 Here his is telling us how he wants to decorate the roof.IMG_0109 Kalen tried to help a little, but she just ended up knocking the candy off the house and then putting them in her mouth!IMG_0114 Tyler enjoyed some of the leftover candies after the house was done.IMG_0115I think our first family gingerbread house came out pretty good! IMG_0119 It was such a fun activity, I’m sure we will be doing it again next year! Oh, and the best part was that the gingerbread house was pre-assembled!! So all you had to do was decorate! So easy!
