A New Christmas Tradition: A Gingerbread House

Well here we are trying out a new family tradition. We love to spend time doing things with the kids that they can get involved in and along with them being able to help put it together they also get to eat it after it is all over.

Here My Hubby is trying to keep the sides together. We laughed so hard because on the first try the entire house collapsed. It was so funny trying to get this thing all together.

We all have some candy to start the decorating process.
