They are so lovely with all that sugary sweet stuff on top of, well, sugar. With coconut flakes sprinkled generously to make it look sparkly. *Sigh* How are your Christmas preparations coming? Do you have decorations up? Seems our house is all about traditions happening lately. We just got our Christmas tree up and now we are making gingerbread houses. Gingerbread houses is something I look forward to every year. We have some pretty fun stories about them. Like the year I decided, detailed girl I am, to make a barbed wire fence all along my house. We stuck pretzels as the posts and then made teeny tiny little holes on a string and attempted to attach that to posts…. I`m never doing that again! Or the time we were being so wild taking pictures afterwords of the gingerbread houses ( Well, maybe goofy pictures…..) that we knocked the Christmas tree down. Such good memories… anyway, back to the present! This year we again gathered our selections of candies and began to create.
It`s fun to think that someday I will look back to these gingerbread houses. Maybe even laugh at all the decorations we did. Our decorating purpose has definitely changed from put on as much candy as you can so you have more to eat later, to using only what you really think will enhance your house, and eating enough while you’re making them to make up the difference. Post a comment and tell me about your holiday traditions!
