I guess it’s official.

I have an annual Christmas Holiday Event.

Year 2 of the Gingerbread House Party and I am already plotting for next year.

This year it was a bit different, we held the event in our school auditorium.

It was scheduled to rain and the stress of checking the weather report got the best of me and I just made the call.

Of course the day was sunny and rain free.

It turned out that  I loved having the event at the school and not in my home.

Last year I discovered candy in various nooks and cranny’s for months.

.  Clean up was easier, the house was intact and the kids had a whole play yard to work off the sugar high.

A million smiles.

A annual tradition indeed.

Merry Christmas!
