Making gingerbread houses- a family tradition

Every year before Christmas, our family makes gingerbread houses together.
Even some of our best friends join in on the fun.

Meet our friends Adrian and Tabitha.
They live in the US but are originally from Romania and we LOVE them.

Sometimes it becomes a competition between the girls and guys.

The guys try really hard to win but Tabitha is an interior designer
and her skills usually beat the competition.

The kids also like to make Christmas trees from ice cream cones covered in icing and then they decorate them with M&Ms.

Our beautiful and edible masterpieces!
We get to eat them on Christmas morning. The kids' favorite part. ☺

So CUTE!!! My girls LOVE making gingerbread houses ... although I think they end up eating more candy than they put on the house. ;)
