We’ve been super busy around here, and I apologize for not posting holiday crafts and tutorials like I had planned. Seems that life with a newborn doesn’t always conform to my schedule of activities šŸ˜‰ Besides, I’ve been up to my eyeballs in gingerbread, err, graham crackers posing as gingerbread.

Lots and LOTS of graham crackers and royal icing. Royal icing is like magic glue, I swear. I made 15 of these “gingerbread” houses for my boys’ school, and I didn’t break a single one in transit. Knowing the way my kids get in and out of the car, tossing and jostling and shuffling everything that might get in their way, that is truly amazing! I can’t wait to see how they turn out once all the kiddos decorate them.
