Holiday Traditions

December is a hectic month so it is all the more important to take some time for yourself and your family before it ramps up. I love to host my annual gingerbread house decorating lunch with my grand children and my good friend's grand children. Andrew and I bake the gingerbread pieces for little individual houses ahead of time and assemble them with Royal Icing so that they are good and sturdy for the whatever the kids can throw at them. On the day of we turn on the carols, have a bowl of hot soup or chill and the house is pretty festive for a few hours... and yes, much candy is consumed!
