Gingerbread 2012

As our annual holiday tradition, we host a Gingerbread party where our friends and family gather to build their gingerbread creations.

Here's what Owen and I did the day before to prepare.

Mama also made 2 sets of gingerbread houses and stars to stack for Christmas trees as well as tons of gingerbread men and women.

We woke up early the next day to help mama make the icing and set up the tables for decorating the gingerbreads.

All ready to decorate!
