Earlier this week, the Henning family had their first annual ninjabread house decorating party. Caleb calls it ninjabread house instead of gingerbread so that why ninjabread house. With several graham crackers, homemade royal icing (super easy by the way only three ingredients, way cheaper than store bought frosting) and lots of candy, we were ready to make our houses.
We started with a simple four sided wall, a top then two pieces making a triangle for the roof. The royal icing dried fast which helped hold the house up. Between the marshmallows on the top, the Mike and Ikes, some gummy bears, Caleb's ninjabread was done.
I was working on my house in the same fashion, which Sean took to make his ninjabread house more like a castle.
Has it been hard to keep Caleb away from the houses especially to not eat all the candy off of it? You bet! So you tell me what are you doing with your family to enjoy the Christmas season? Any new traditions you are starting this year?
