Christmas Preparations

Decorating the tree

 Making gingerbread houses with the cousins

Graham cracker houses at home
 Note to self: this plan was genius!  I formed the houses and let them dry before the boys started decorating them.  Then I put the ingredients in an egg carton instead of 10 different little containers.  We didn't use candy; rather we used what was in the house: star-shaped cereal puffs, chocolate chips, raisins, craisins, walnuts, almonds, cheerios, goldfish crackers, marshmallows, coconut, and leftover candy canes.  That way I didn't have to feel so bad when the boys inevitably started eating the decorations.

Their finished products

Time for a Starbucks break!
