Gingerbread House Party

Can you tell I have been totally catching up on my blog!? Lately I have been posting every 10 days or so, but now it is like everyday! 
A few days ago I hosted the first annual Aunt Meggy's Gingerbread Party!! I have always said that I wanted to do this with the kids in my family. When making gingerbread houses with kids, you HAVE to prep before. I glued (yes, hot glued) the house pieces together the night before. About an hour before the kiddos arrived I made the icing. Click HERE for a great icing recipe. Then, I put all of the candy in separate bowls and decorated the table real cute so they would want to stay! ;) Do you like my gingerbread man tin plates! Will definitely be using them each year.

We had so much fun decorating the houses! Gaga helped Toby with his. They were having a ball. Tobs made this a competition and kept saying that they were winning!! He was loving it! And I was just getting a kick out it especially when he kept shoving candies in Gaga's mouth! Jayden and Melissa worked on their house. Jay was sampling the candies of course. And Weston sat in his little chair the whole time and did not complain at all! I was so amazed! As long as he had something in his hand (or mouth) he was happy! He actually did help with the house. See the red gumdrop on the roof of Weston's house? He put that there!! ;)
What a super fun party and it went so smoothly!
