Yesterday marked the end of my gingerbread house virginity. Can you believe that I had never made a gingerbread house before? Maddie and I got a Rudolph gingerbread house kit and worked together to make it our own. We had so much fun (despite the stickiness of the frosting) it's something that we hope to do every year together. Next year we plan on having a whole lot more candy choices though!
Every year my mom makes it her special project to make a little tree of branches and decorate it for Christmas. It's something so simple but it's always beautiful and one of my favorite Christmas decorations. It looks so pretty with the glittery white, silver, and blue ornaments. I think I may have to steal this idea in the future.
