In years past, we have made gingerbread houses to start the holidays off. This usually happens around Thanksgiving, but this year we were a bit slow. We ended up decorating the gingerbread on Christmas Day.
I am all about traditions during the holiday season and decided I wanted to start a new tradition this year. Instead of making only a gingerbread house, I made a gingerbread nativity too. I did it all freehand this year and I think it turned out great.Jon did most of the decorating of the nativity and all the decor on the house. This is definitely a tradition we will keep.
