The kids were so excited about making this cute gingerbread house. We pulled it out today and Luke just couldn't wait to get going. Ella on the other hand, couldn't wait to start eating. Each time Luke noticed that Ella had snuck a treat he would exclaim the since Ella had one it was only fair that he got one as well. Luckily Luke didn't see even a half of the times that Ella snagged herself a goodie... or we'd have had 2 hyped up kid's at bed time. The best was that when Luke asked for a candy to taste he followed with " You and Mommy talk about it." and then said "my tummy is asking for it." He's a funny boy.
So here's to the first year of a new tradition. It was such a fun family activity. The kids really did end up doing a lot of the decorating.
