Gingerbread Houses | 2013

Just after Thanksgiving, we started packing up our house to move. About 2 days before we were scheduled to move our stuff into storage (more on that later), we got settled into my parents house. This year, we are living with Mimi and Pop during the entire Christmas season. And first on the things to do was make our annual gingerbread houses to add to the decorations.

We spread out on the kitchen island and got out the kits I bought at Target. As much as I love baking, the fun of this particular project is all in the decorating (in my opinion). I want to bake things that I'm actually going to get to eat!

As always, carefully choosing and placing his candy pieces.

Looks like Logan is being pretty careful and precise too. I love his look of concentration here...

Logan decided to be silly and try to eat his house. Crazy kid!
