New New Year's Day Tradition

Totally pre-packaged.
and Pre-tty fun.

I have always wanted to make a Gingerbread House with the boys, but never wanted to bake the gingerbread myself or pay full price. We all know how things automatically drop in price after the 25th day of the 12th month!

The frosting was very thick and hard to pipe. I did that part. Twice. I ignored the recommendation to trim the walls to make sure they have clean lines. A very important step that won't be missed next time. The boys enjoyed decorating and my main goal was to spend time doing something to avoid the bed jumping, lap running and Lego throwing.

It worked.

Of course, you can't make a gingerbread house without eating it.
