As we see a Last week as part of our Home-school Co-op group we were a part of Gingerbread house making, as you most likely know by now our girls love to make things with heir hands craft-like but the reality was that the star of the show were not the crafts but the candy that they all had and how they enjoyed “gluing” and eating the same thing.

Moms and children gathered, chat and most importantly we all had a great time. At the end of the day we were all very happy with the fun and interesting houses that were made, some could not wait to destroy it and eat all of it while others preferred to save it for latter and show their master pieces to family and friends. We are truly blessed to be surrounded by so many great people that come together making our lives better.
