I have finally realized that in order to really ENJOY the season, some of the Christmas traditions need to wait until AFTER Christmas, when we are on break, not still working on Christmas Eve service stuff - but when we actually have the time off to ENJOY doing it and not just rushing to get it finished! So what if we make the gingerbread houses AFTER Christmas!!
Judah had his own "house" to keep him happy
Daddy, Callie, and Caleb worked on one house
Josiah and Jacob worked on another house
Callie REALLY wanted it to look JUST like the box. I think that's actually impossible, but they came pretty close!
