Last week one of Olive's advent activities was to build a gingerbread house. We had gotten the kit about a week before and she had asked to build it every day since. She was thrilled when she opened her advent and it said "Build a Gingerbread house", I am pretty sure she screa-quealed which is this lovely sound she makes that combines a scream and a squeal. My friend Anna told me that they use hot glue to hold the walls together and then use the icing to stick on decorations. BRILLIANT! It lowered the stress level of building it significantly! Mommy's brain is still not functioning properly and so we had a little incident with the icing bag, which resulted in a big mess and our icing looking like a total disaster, but Olive didn't seem to mind! Ready to get started!
She was so proud of the finished product!
It is definitely not a masterpiece, but it is OUR masterpiece! :)
