A new tradition begins

I had a friend who made gingerbread houses every year at Christmas time. I loved the way she spoke of it and the fond memories she had about her family's tradition so when I saw this great kit I knew I had to add it to my cart.
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.

They turned out VERY cute Jill! I'm glad we got to talk tonight! Thanks for the fun drive up to the temple. It would have been boring just me and Brady! Thanks again!
