My First [Gingerbread] Home

Every year, Trader Joe’s has these cute Gingerbread House Kit’s for Christmas. And I’ve always wanted to buy one, but never did. I never felt like I had a good enough excuse. Until this year!

Look who got one for Christmas?

The gingerbread pieces are nice and puffy and thick. I love that it’s made with all natural ingredients with no added preservatives. And it comes with candy decorations and cute little gingerbread people.

Of course, the gummies didn’t stand a chance. They were eaten faster than it took to set up. Which wasn’t long.

I added some of my own extra Christmas sprinkles.

Dad helped build it, but when it came to decorating…

She did it all on her own.

Minus the HUGE mess, it actually came out looking really really nice. Kind of messy bun-ish, purposeful.

This is how we spent our Christmas morning. How did you spend yours?
