I know this post will come across as trite as trite can be, but seriously, there is something so magic about gingerbread houses that puts everyone in the spirit. At our gingerbread party a few years ago, one mom said she overheard the kids’ chatter, “This is the best time of year!” How sweet? Kids in the moment and enjoying every part of it. So come on, gather your last bit of energy and just do it, it doesn’t have to be a master piece, just an effort! All in the name of putting a smile on a kid-just like this one!
