**Ginger Bread House**

Well, usually every year I go and buy graham crackers, frosting, and a bunch of candy, and the kids make a little gingerbread house from scratch, but his year I saw a really cute little kit at the store, so I decided to go that route instead this year. We only have the 3 younger girls at home now, and the oldest (Courtney) is 17 & wasn't too into it this year, so while I was wrapping some gifts last night the 2 youngest (Hillary~11 & Gracie~9) dove into putting it together and decorating it. I think they did a pretty good job, don't you?? Usually we like to "display" their art work, but this year it looked so yummy that I thought....why not let them enjoy it before it gets hard as a rock!! So, after taking some pictures of them with it, I let them rip into it. We still have all the cookie decorating to do, so the fun will continue. Hope you all like seeing the pictures of my 2 littlest artists. Blessings~~Jackie

They are so beautiful Jackie and yes they did one heck of a job! My youngest girl Frankie, 8 is the one who makes our gingerbread house each year. I think I am going to go with a kit this year too.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
