Its Christmas Vacation!

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Schools out and the kiddos are home for a glorious 2 weeks.  Im super excited to have all my little chicks under my wing for the rest of the holiday season.  Their first day out, we made these…..

A Gingerbread Village
Holiday project # 5

Its a tradition that we make a gingerbread house every year.  Last year the three big kids entered and won a competition with their “Whoville“(Grinch-inspired) creation.  While it was a ton of fun, creating our own design, baking gingerbread from scratch and assembling with homemade royal icing was a three day event.  We decided to streamline a bit this year.  Pre-baked $9.00 Gingerbread Village……Thank you Walmart!  

The set contained 5 individual structures, icing “glue” and all the candy decorations.

We decorated them outside at our picnic table, barefoot on a balmy 70 degree afternoon.  And this my friends, is why I love winter in the South!
