Gingerbread House Fun

Can you guys believe it's one week until Christmas? It has caught up to me so fast this year. Things have been so busy, but I've tried to be proactive about taking time to enjoy the Christmas season. While my sister was in town this past week, we decided to make a gingerbread house. We used to make them every year as kids, so I thought it'd be neat to start up the tradition again. We kind of took the easy way out this time and used a box, but next year I think we'll make our own ginger bread. It'd be so neat to make a mini replica of our house! Anyway, it was a blast working on this cute little log cabin house. I guess it's more of a pretzel house than a gingerbread one, but oh well! Ha!

The materials...

What sort of traditions have you gone back to over the years?
