Every year my kids each decorate a gingerbread house.
It's something we did in our family when I was young, I think my sisters do it with their kids every year, too.
Some years I make the gingerbread, some years I just buy a kit.
The shapes and sizes of the houses change, but the smile on my face is always the same as I watch them concentrate on building the perfect.
The finished works of art....
On December 31st, they will break their houses to ring in the new year.
I am glad we kept this tradition going, I hope my kids do it with their children, too.
