Gingerbread House

Last night I made out very first Gingerbread House with my boys,
I always wanted to make a gingerbread house as a kid (but had a Mom with little patience & Christmas spirit), so it was a lot of fun - and a bit challenging to keep them focused on the task. Kiki loved sticking the little candies on, while Big boy got bored quickly after realizing the plate of candy wasn't just for snacking :)

Also, Kiki kept asking if we were going to eat the house, to which I told him 'No, we will bake gingerbread cookies to eat'... Somehow he took this as meaning later and kept asking
'And it will be dark outside, then we will eat the gingerbread house?'
'And we will wake up tomorrow and eat the gingerbread house?'
'Oh, it is dark outside! And now we can eat the gingerbread house?'

Such a fun tradition to do each year for Christmas!
