Gingerbread House

Have I ever said how much I love this time of year?I love all of the traditions, the excitement and happiness that comes this time of year. I must admit it is definitely a little bit more stressful now that I am an adult and mother of four. I put a lot of pressure on myself to make it the "best" Christmas for my kiddos and hubby like the ones I had growing up. But in the end everything always turns out great, this year is no exception. I am so thankful for all of my many blessings!

One of our traditions that we have done for the last couple of years is putting together a ginger bread house. Ryan was home last night and we didn't have anything scheduled, so it was the perfect night. This year Lincoln really got into helping decorate the house with the few candies he didn't eat. Kaitlyn and Reuben really brainstormed some good ideas for the house this year! It was fun to work all together!

Ryan was the mastermind behind the fence. I love it when the light shines through it like stained glass.

What a fun tradition, guys! Is it weird that I got sad seeing Ryan in scrubs? There's just so much about you guys that we've missed out on! Anyway, *sniff* we miss you!
