Gingerbread House

This is our first Christmas at home. Yippee!!! So we decided to start a few Christmas traditions and make lasting memories for us and the children. First on the list, making (or in this case decorating) a gingerbread house.

Nice huh?! It looks a 100 times better then it taste. D didn't even like it and Bean wouldn't go near it. This is a tradition that will probably end here. Unless I can find a good recipe for gingerbread, rather then buying the premade box with the icing made of crushed gravel.

We bought the Christmas tree one too. :-( We'll let Bean have her way with that one and we'll just add it to the table as a Christmas decoration.

Other traditions:

- We always open 1 present on Christmas Eve.
- Attend Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.
- Everyone helps with baking cookies for Santa. Oh, how I love that jolly fellow!
- Cut down our own Christmas tree. However, the fake one's are so much easier.

That's all I got! We made a few decorations this year but other then that, I'm all out of idea's. What traditions do you look forward to each year?
