Gingerbread time!

What gets you more in the Christmas spirit than watching Christmas movies and decorating gingerbread houses!? (Waking up at 6 am to wrap presents?)

My mom surprised her two children (who are 31 and 28) with a gingerbread house kit from IKEA. At the risk of sounding like I am on IKEA’s payroll, I will tell you that my entire family is OBSESSED with IKEA’s gingerbread cookies. My mom has bought FOUR tins in the last couple of weeks and she doesn’t live in a city with IKEA that means she’s making special trips for these cookies. They are legit. I wouldn’t lie to you, people of the blogosphere.

Here’s a link to the regular cookies:

And here’s one to the best $3.59 my mom has spent in a while:

Aaron and I had a blast putting this gingerbread house together. He did most of the building and I jumped in on the decorating — the roles we’ve been living for the last 30 years.

Come along and see our adventure! Hope you enjoy and are inspired as well!
