GINGERBREAD HOUSE: #NAILEDIT

We are in the midst of a fun Wichita Christmas with all of my family.  Yesterday, we decorated a gingerbread house.  I used to do elaborate completely from scratch gingerbread houses and loved doing it.  Since the advent of several children and a cookie business, time for this has gone by the wayside.  Also, trying to do something perfectly with children is an exercise in futility, so we did this gingerbread house perfectly their way.

It was a bit chaotic, and they loved it.

Violet kept entertained by this dancing Santa.

We did other baking as well with Aunt Laura's help.

And this is how the gingerbread house turned out.  I'm pretty sure we nailed it.  Kid's kept snatching candy off the sides, which really enhances the look.

Another Christmas fun item crossed off the list to everyone's great delight.  Maybe someday we will make elaborate gingerbread houses again.  Until then, we'll rock the kits.
