For the last 9 days the kids have enjoyed opening up a gift every morning as part of our new "12 Days of Christmas" tradition. Each day they have a new little gift that they can either eat or that we can enjoy doing together as a family. I had a friend who had implemented this idea in their home and I thought it would be a great way to bring us a little closer as a family and give us something to open each day rather than have a mountain of presents on Christmas morning.
Last Saturday we opened up a gingerbread house kit and we spent the afternoon making our gingerbread house. I did most of the frosting while Abby and Landon did most of the eating...I mean decorating with the candy!
Just like a professional, don't you think?!?!?
