Christmas gingerbread houses

One of our annual Christmas traditions is decorating gingerbread houses with the kids.  This year I came across a nativity scene. I was excited to be able to focus on Jesus Christ and not just the regular winter scene and holiday train.

Andrew was our quality control specialist, taste testing all of the candy, sprinkles, and frosting for best quality. Fortunately, they all passed :)

Stella's train was leaning a bit to the side and had to be reconstructed a couple of times, but the frosting is as good as cement. Once it dried it was unbreakable. 

Emilia and Carson both had new scenes this year. Emilia selected the nativity scene and did an amazing job at decorating it with the rudimentary tools given for the activity. 

Carson had the most varied selection of candy of all three packages. He enjoyed building all different types of little houses and even designed a frozen pond in the middle of the subdivision.
