Gingerbread Houses

December was a whirlwind, as it always is.  There were parties galore and of course, many things to do to get ready throughout the month.

We managed to get everything done in good time, and I was so happy when the schools were finally out for winter break.

We squeezed in a gingerbread house construction party right before Christmas.  The kids were in heaven.
We had good friends, and a kitchen table strewn with graham crackers and bowls full of candy of all kinds.

I saved almond milk containers for weeks so we could glue the graham crackers straight on the boxes, rather than trying to manage to keep the walls standing on their own. 
And it worked!  The icing was perfect, we ended up with the best gingerbread house party yet.
