I am racing against the time and trying to post this as fast as possible while the calender still says December. I wanted to show you the gingerbread houses my sisters and I made. I “stole” these pictures from my sister Becky because I’m in a big rush! I know that Christmas is over, but I really wanted to share with you the last bit of our Christmas celebration before the New Year is upon us.
I know this will shock you, but this is the first time we made gingerbread houses! And it’s probably going to be the last time. Ha! The whole process was a bit chaotic, and there were
lots some tears shed by some of my younger sisters whose houses were kind of collapsing during the building process.
We actually used chocolate sugar cookies instead of gingerbread cookies. My 4-year-old sister Caroline was hilarious. She would put 3 M&Ms on her gingerbread house, stare at them for a few seconds, and then pick them one by one and pop them in her mouth. Little kids…
In the end, they still had fun, and we ended up with a little gingerbread town. My little house is the one in the back with the 2 pillars. Kind of pathetic looking, but not only am I not an artsy person, I was low on frosting and candy so that was the best I could come up with. And mine was actually the first one to collapse.
It looks like our little town was attacked by some enemies.
We also gave some Christmas treats to our mailman. He was pleased!
Our Christmas tablescape. Very similar with our Thanksgiving one.
Now I can breath a sigh of relief and wish you all a Happy & Blessed 2015!
