Gingerbread Christmas Fun!

Okay, so most of you who have known me for a while, will know that at Christmas I make Gingerbread Houses.  I have managed over the years to make and sell over 100 (that’s a guess) houses for people for Christmas gifts.

This year I had no orders to fill, and only two little girls that were desperate to help me make a gingerbread house – together, with them – helping – me – decorating together – ummm, this was going to be a challenge for me.

I must admit that when it comes to doing this sort of thing, I like things to look a certain way.  Okay, I’m a wee bit of a control freak, and don’t tend to let others help, in case they get it wrong.  Not a great attitude to take into a lovely Christmas project with your daughters!

SO, in the spirit of Christmas, and having fun with my kids I reigned in all my needs for perfection, and let the girls have some fun.  I think that what we ended up with was AWESOME!  Yes, awesome.  Here’s the proof.

Faith sampling the decorations!

Faith decorating around the igloo - yep, an igloo - what else are mini marshmallows for?!

The girls working together

The finished product!

Notice on the finished product, the snowman out the front.  That was Emma’s idea, and she put it together on her own!  How creative is she?  It was also, sadly the only snowman made over the Christmas period, as we had no snow in Wisconsin, but that is a story for another time!

(P.S. – please don’t mention that they might want to help me if I get orders for 50 – I’m not sure that I could survive it! Ha!)
