Today is the last day for our Blog Hop...hope you all enjoyed hopping with us as which as we have enjoyed having you hop! You will have through out the weekend to leave a comment on all the project posts so that you are entered in the grand prize drawings.
Now on to today's topic....favorite holiday craft!
Every year for Christmas, my family and I love to decorate gingerbread houses.The Wilton company has the best gingerbread house kits for busy family's. Everything you need is in the box and the house is already to go, so there is no baking and you can get right to the fun of decorating! We get some ideas from the box, but mostly the kids just decorate it as they wish. My job is to mix-up the frosting and make sure the kids don't get too much candy on the floor for the dogs to eat. We have made lots of houses and even a train one year.
This year we found a gingerbread village. There are 5 houses, so we are each going to decorate our own. Even Paul will be trying his hand at decorating this year.....I will let you know how it goings!
Here are my kiddo's back in 2003 with their finished gingerbread house. When the holidays are over, we put peanut butter on the roof, then top it with bird seed and put the house on the deck so that the birds can enjoy it. (We do take the candies off first.)
Thanks so much for hopping with us all....hope you have enjoyed it and have gotten some Christmas projects done for gifts or even yourself to enjoy!
