As promised, our gingerbread house! We got a Wilton house kit from the YMCA Christmas party that we went to a weekend or two ago, and Jesse and I had so much fun making it, we decided to try and make it a tradition :) I think it's kind of premature to refer to something done once as "tradition" or "annual", but we're going to try and make it so. Of course, doing a kit is fine for a year or two, but Jesse has already told me I need to figure out how to make good gingerbread so we can make the whole shebang from scratch. Woohoo.

Lily wasn't too participatory this year, but we figure in a few years, we'll have a kid's house and an adult's house: Jesse admitted to seeing himself being too particular to let the kids help with his, haha
That's it for tonight!
