12.07.13 Gingerbread house with three girlsThe children who have participated before came right in, picked out a house and got right to it.  They have spent time even thinking of how they will decorate their house. Those new to the process were more tentative and wanted to know if they could take their houses home…of course!  I love doing this every year.  This year we have a split event because I didn’t pay attention to a big dance event…the Nutcracker!  I can’t wait to catch up with three more and their friends this coming Saturday!

We did have fun last week decorating the office…
