The boys broke out the gingerbread houses last Friday after Thanksgiving. That is an old tradition in our family. Check out the blog from our past :


This year it was just the boys decorating. We sent Scott Black Friday Shopping!!!


I will wait while you laugh.









He wasn’t shopping for toys. Laugh again.





He was shopping for livestock feed!


Anyway, we started with store bought houses that we hot glued together. Over the years we have learned the decorating part is what the boys love the most and waiting for the royal icing in the kits to dry never happens. The glue also makes the houses VERY strong.




We lined the breakfast nook table with paper, snapped a picture and off they went!





They each have their own style. It is fun to watch their creativity!





Scott got home in time to help us place the last few pieces of candy.









Once again the boys did a great job. I would highly recommend this project for anyone with little people. It is a fun way to kick off the holiday season.
