Little Daniel's Gingerbread House Decorating Party

Yesterday, little Daniel invited 3 of his neighborhood friends over to decorate Gingerbread houses.  I purchased the kits for $10.00 each at Bed,Bath & Beyond.

Papa Dan helped the little guy put together the four Gingerbread houses the night before.   Dan was upset   when we made a quick run to Costco a few hours before Daniel's gathering and saw pre-built Gingerbread houses for the very same price.  
The kids were very excited and couldn't wait to get started. Naturally, we had to keep reminding the little ones to put the sugar goodies on the house instead of their hungry little mouths.
 Daniel insisted on applying the icing himself which explains the shortage on the roof.  A little squeeze for the shingles....and big squeeze in the mouth of the decorator.

Everyone really enjoyed themselves.  The kids wanted to make it a tradition. I agree. 

Happy Holidays!

I remember doing this with my kids. Ashley invited her girlfriends to the party, but we didn't have pre-fab houses. Instead, I made gingerbread houses out of graham crackers and sticky sugar glue. Disaster. Sticky is the word! And, they kept collapsing! But, it was fun! Looks like Daniel and gang had a great time too!

This is a fun party for the kids. No need to be upset after visiting Costco :) this is universal, we all find a better deal after we are done shopping :)
