ellen and clara love making gingerbread houses every year right before christmas. when clara started the diet, the first year, we did not make one, but last year, i found a gingerbread house kit that doesn’t use real candies.
yesterday, i went to ikea, and they had a light-up paper gingerbread house on sale. i bought white ones so the girls can decorate them. they spent an hour decorating, and still decorating even as i write this. they are using some candy shaped stickers and markers to decorate the house. clara even put little toys inside. =)
