Gingerbread Houses and Matching Jammies

This past weekend we got together with our good friends John and Ali and their two little ones. They live a few hours away so we don't get to see them as often as we like, which is a shame because the kids LOVED hanging out together!

Seriously love these kiddos! Ali and I have been plotting to get a matching jammie pic....which our husbands thought was ridiculous, I'm sure. But how cute are they???? This was one of the only ones that didn't turn out blurry! These four were too busy laughing, wrestling, and messing around to pose for a picture!

We brought gingerbread house kits for the boys to decorate....and it was a BIG hit! I was worried more candy would end up in their bellies than on the houses, but the boys were so good and only ate a few pieces. They had so much fun decorating...it was adorable. But in true three year old form, they tired out after about a half an hour, which meant that the dads had to take over.

It turned in to a little bit of a competition....and I'm sad to say my husband lost. If you knew these two you wouldn't be surprised.

But look how cute it turned out! The gingerbread house kits (from Costco!) came with some candy but I also brought a few extra bags just in case....and we totally used it all.

I did this side! The whole time I tried to get Hudson to make a wreath out of the holly and berries, but he didn't go for it. Thankfully I got my chance when he was done! Hudson did the roof and my husband did that left side. Not too shabby!

We had such a fun weekend! Christmas with kids is seriously the best.

  4. Cute, cute! Love your gingerbread house! Emerson did one the other night, but I didn't have a change to decorate any of the house. Maybe we'll have to get another kit so we can do another one :)
