The Second Day of Christmas

For our family the Christmas season is just getting started. We’ll celebrate for a full twelve days, until Epiphany, with small gifts or special activities. We have two families that also mark the season the same way and it’s always fun to plan stuff together.

This year we did a gingerbread house decorating contest and oh, my the sugar and creativity flowed freely!

Some of us made our ginger bread from scratch and some of us (me!) used the store bought kits. But we all had to have some gingerbread people to complete our cookie scene.

Fruit roll ups make for excellent roofing trim!

The ginger bread train was loaded with gumdrops and other candies!

The final houses…

It was a fun afternoon with dear friends and a possible new tradition for our annual celebration.
