Gingerbread Houses 2017

This weekend we checked a few fun things off our Christmas season to do list. ;) It was a GREAT weekend! We have events and fun but also had some time to relax as well. I love that we are doing a better job of saying "no," because it has totally become our BEST YES.

Saturday morning we were slow to get going due to a late Friday night. After breakfast I sets the table and Wyatt and Sloane decorated their gingerbread houses. I thought about only getting one house but decided on 2...I am so thankful I did. ($6.99 houses from Aldi for the W.I.N.)

I love using the brown paper as a table cloth. This is something I have been doing for a while. We use is when we do crafts, bake, and a ton of other things. I get a roll from the $1 store and it does 2 stripes for 2 separate times. TOTALLY A WIN! It's super fun when we are finished they always end up drawing all over it. I wish I would. have kept the doodles or at least taken pictures of them including Mark's super fun drawings. ;) He is actually really artistic when he wants to be. 

I set up a fun little area for both houses. Yes, I am totally the mom that hot glues the houses together BEFORE we decorate. Judge away...I don't even care! They have a blast added the touches and don't have to worry about pushing too hard LOL!!! 

They are super serious about this. I love watching how different they each are...I think Wyatt might have had 3 things on the actual house but let me tell you the landscape was top notch. Sloane enjoyed making the roof "look cute." 

And because I love to compare you can see 2016 Gingerbread House HERE. We also decorated in 2015 and you can see it HERE. And if that wasn't fun enough you can see Wyatt's VERY 1st house HERE.  Happy Monday!!!
