Wordless Wednesday 12/7/11 with Linky

One of my favorite holiday traditions is making gingerbread houses with my son.
I pipe and he designs.

Gingerbread House

“When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that it’s the simplest things
,not the great occasions, that give off the greatest glow of happiness.”
~ Bob Hope, American film actor and comedian.

I hope when my boys think of Christmas time they remember
things like making gingerbread houses
and not what was (or was not) under the tree.

Happy Wordless Wednesday and Thank You for Linking up here at Nola Mommy!

  17. That turned out really cool! I’ve never done one with Princess Nagger…maybe we should start a tradition, she’d probably love it! :)

  18. What a fun idea!! I hope to someday do this with my daughter.

  19. What a great memory to build with your child! I, too, hope my kids remember some of the fun things we do together since they usually forget what gifts they got about 2 weeks after Christmas! Not because they get so many, because they don’t. Just because the gifts really don’t mean as much to them as they think.
