While we were out Black Friday shopping, Ashar spotted this gingerbread village kit at Joann Fabrics. $9.99 on sale, and you could make four mini gingerbread houses instead of one big one! Of course we bought it!
(Don’t judge. I like natural foods and do-it-yourself projects as much as the next person, but I’m not baking house-shaped gingerbread. That’s my Christmas gift to me!)
Anyway, over the past couple of days, my mom and Ashar have been working on this as their holiday project. And they’re adorable!
There’s the Scalloped Cottage…
The Awesome A-Frame…
The Yellow Awning Cottage…
And the Pastel Perfect Suite! (My mother claims this bears some resemblance to an outhouse, but the poor thing is cute.)
And, since we have a sugar-loving large dog, these can’t sit out just anywhere. They’ve gone behind the glass doors of our entertainment center, which is a little unusual but certainly a good way to jazz up a DVD collection?!
We haven’t had time to pull off something cool like a fun Christmas activity EVERY day this Advent, but we’re doing what we can, and having a great time!
I’m linking up today to the All Year Round Blog Carnival: Winter Edition.
