Wednesday Whereabouts

We could build a gingerbread community with the amount of houses we made this past weekend. On Saturday, we headed to the girls’ preschool for a Christmas Bazaar.  While parents shopped the variety of vendors there, the children had their own room, where they could create nativity ornaments, make Christmas cookies, build gingerbread houses, get their faces painted and enjoy cookies and hot chocolate, with marshmallows.  To say the girls had a blast is an understatement. The best part for me were the one-on-one helpers.

They ran out of graham crackers, so they improvised!

Later that day, while the girls were napping, I had the opportunity to take some photos of my good friends, with their sweet little baby.  Can’t believe he’s already two weeks old!  Here are just a few of my favorites…

And finally, on Sunday, we attempted to build our own gingerbread house.

While W worked on the house, E sat and ate all the candy.

So much for buying a pre-made house, that came with all the bells and whistles…royal icing, gum balls, gumdrops, sprees, you name it!  I clearly am not an architect.  When the roof slid off, W said “That’s the garage, Mama!”

But then again, who gets to build a gingerbread house, and eat it the very same day?!  These girls did, and they enjoyed every savory bite!

If you like their snowflake pajamas, they’re currently selling at Target for $7.99.
Does anyone have any better gingerbread house kits, that they could share?
Happy Wednesday, Y’all!

  1. Gingerbread houses are a family tradition for us too. Our children are 24, 19, and 17, and we still do one! Haha.. Our oldest is a daughter, and it has become a creative outlet for her. Her brothers just like to eat the candy now. I usually got my kit at Costco or Target. Great memories!

  2. The girls are so cute & look great! I love that they thought of the "garage" for the sliding roof! Hope you guys have a great week!
