Family Gingerbreading and Lots of Pictures!

Last year we sort of began a tradition of making a gingerbread house on Christmas Eve. It's loads of fun and super messy...which makes for an interesting evening! It's me, sister, Tina (my step-mom), and my cousins. We always have a lot of fun are some pictures from the gingerbread-house-making.

 the beginning

 Sister is getting ready to sneak some icing. It was SO GROSS but she kept eating it anyway.

 My artistic cousins helped with the decorating. It looked so much better than last year when I was in charge! They actually made some straight lines :) 

 The roof may have caved it... But we fixed it!

 I have adorable cousins :)

Sorry this post is so photo heavy :) It was really hard to choose my favorites! We also made some ridiculous looking cookies. They looked pretty terrible, but they were yummy! We actually used cookie cutters and decorated them all cute, but they sort of clumped together in the oven.

Me and sister! 

It was such a wonderful night! I hope we continue this tradition for a long time. I really enjoy spending this time with my lovely family. Do any of you make a gingerbread house every year? It's really fun!

Is Bigfoot True or fraudulent? For over four hundred a long time, there are actually reporting’s of a guy like monster that is certainly totally covered in hair.
