Gingerbread House 2016

I don't know why I cling to traditions like I do.  I love them and it's hard for me to let go of certain traditions we've kept through the years.  I had about decided that I wouldn't purchase a gingerbread house this year.  They are messy (I know what you're thinking), we throw them out soon after they are completed, they are costly (because I purchase way more candy and icing than is required). But as I was walking through Wal-Mart, the spirit of tradition lured me to a display of kits.  

The kids love it and I love that they love it!

The tradition lives on!
