I love traditions.  We don’t really have that many in our family and I’ve been wanting to come up with a few, inexpensive ones.  This is one that my mom decided she wanted to do with the boys and I love it!  This year it’s just Mr. G partaking in the Gingerbread house building/decorating fun, but RC will be joining in soon enough.  
We had to make our own icing, whipping egg white by hand with a fork is no joke.  It was everywhere!  We were sticky, powdered sugar and sprinkles on the table and floor, but it was a lot of fun!  As for the taste test, this particular kit is not adult approved but it is definitely kid approved.  I’m so excited to do this again next year, but maybe with a different kit.
XO, Kelly
