Gingerbread Houses

The kids were invited to our sweet new neighbors' house to decorate gingerbread,aka graham cracker, houses. We live in a very small neighborhood with only 8 houses and over the past year it has become rich and full with children as new folks have moved in! I love to watch and listen as they play, laugh, squabble, and just basically "be kids". The ages range from 3 to 13 and it is amazing how well they mix and mingle. What a blessing! It was a fun afternoon and the kids came up with some really creative houses complete with swimming pools and snowmen. They decorated cookies too and it was a fabulous way to celebrate this special season. Thank you Gibbs family for a wonderful afternoon!

  1. I am soooo honored that we made it to your blog. I was so inspired that I couldn't stop reading and perusing your site. We share many of the same family traditions. We are so thankful that God brought your sweet family into our lives--by moving us just a few yards and one big street :) We look forward to many more traditions. The Gibbs
