Gingerbread house & Cookie Baking

Well here comes a storm of posts as I have quite a bit of catching up to do. A nasty sinus infection wiped me out for 2 days and then slowed me down quite a bit, but none the less we had a fabulous end to the Christmas season.

Every year, Hubby and the kids decorate a gingerbread house. The tradition started when Belle was a year and a half and ever year it is more and more fun to see how it becomes more of a kids project and less of Hubby doing the work.

Waiting for the decorating to begin!

Concentration…this is serious business.

Love this picture & the look on Peanut's face

The finished masterpiece

One more for good measure, since the photo above is blurry. And as a note, Bear was napping during the gingerbread decorating.

Later on in the afternoon, YiaYia and Bopi came over to make Christmas cookies. Belle started off making Red Velvet cookies nearly all on her own….I see years of serious baking together in our future:)

The cookie taster. 

It was a fun, festive way to prepare for both the cookie party and Christmas!
