One of our Christmas traditions is the construction of a Gingerbread House. Every year the kids and I bake and decorate a House. It was surprising to me to find that this is something they look forward to every year. Every year it takes me a little longer to get into the "spirit" of constructing our Home. It is a multi-day event and very labor intensive (at least for mom). This year we barely completed it before Christmas. It is finished and it we are quite proud.
