Sugar & Spice and Gingerbread Men

Okay I am really feeling the heat of the summer already (and have the sunburn to prove it) so I am really wishing that it were Christmas time again! These scrapbook pages really take me back and get me in the mood all over again!

Hailey and I had so much fun making cookies this past year, although we totally cheated on the dough! I bought premade-precut dough, since I have zero baking supplies, and we just put all our effort into really cute decorating. I cheated on the decorating too and bought the bagged cookie frosting and lots of sprinkles from the Target dollar bins! :o) The really funny part was after all the snowmen, stockings, and trees were docorated, Hailey wanted to use the leftovers as cookies too. She said one looked like a shark and one looked like a stork! Too funny!

This was our first year making a gingerbread house, so it was a complete learning experience! I am all about making life simple, so we opted for the complete kit and I am really glad we did! It turned out a little lopsided with a gap in the roof, but we still had loads of fun and it was really cool watching her figure out the perfect spot for all the candy accents. After she decorated the people, it was really funny to watch her play with them like they were Barbies! They took on their own personalities and voices!
