A Christmas Spend the Night Party

2 0f the 4 favorites - Kailey and Kenedi - spent the night with Brad and I Friday night. We had the best time!! We read Christmas books, watched movies, fixed Uncle Brad's hair - haha!, and decorated a gingerbread house.
One of my most favorite things about the season is gingerbread. I do a unit at school on gingerbread, and the children always have the most fun reading about the Gingerbread Man..."Run, run as fast as you can! You can't catch me - I'm the Gingerbread man!" So, when Kailey mentioned she wanted to "make crafts", I thought a gingerbread house was a perfect holiday project. I had to remind the girls a couple times though not to eat the icing and candy off the house - but, yes of course I put some icing in a bowl for them to eat. I'm the aunt - I can do things like that :)

Didn't they do a fabulous job??!!

Brad, Kailey, Kenedi, and I wish you a very Merry Christmas from our little gingerbread house to yours!
