Gingerbread Decorating

This year I picked up the Costco gingerbread house at the recommendation of a friend.  We love Costco in this house (specifically after watching the documentary “The Costco Craze” years ago).  I highly recommend this kit if your Costco has any left, or keep an eye out for it next year.

The house comes already put together, which saves significant frustration when dealing with 3 year olds.  It came with two big things of icing and a TON of candy.

We had a friend over to decorate together, and the kids were occupied for the better part of an hour.  I often catch Adelaide sneaking into the dining room and emerging with a piece of candy in her mouth.

It will be a miracle if there’s any candy left on the house by Christmas.
