Last year my mom started the tradition of doing gingerbread houses with the girls. Well, it's really a resurfacing of a long standing tradition of doing gingerbread houses with Danny and Stephanie from when Joey and I were kids, but the girls don't know that :)
I'm not going to lie, pictures are getting harder and harder with this one. She's figured out the fake "cheese" smile and no matter how hard I try for a real one, they are hard to get!
Abby did SO good with her house this year. I did the frosting (it's hard to squeeze) and she did the decorating. She so carefully placed those little tiny balls. She reminded me SO much of me in that moment. Most times her personality is all Ryan while her looks are mostly me....but I saw her quiet perfectionism and enjoyment of the process come out in this activity for sure!
