Tonight is the Gingerbread Sleepover. One of my very favorite nights of the whole entire year.


Have fun. Can't wait to see the results.

What fun.
Finally, a *home improvement* project you can embrace from start to finish.

Please show some pics after the party!! This sounds like such a fun idea.

Can't wait to see the damage. It's one of my fave posts!

Oh, this should be fun!!! Our house looked decidedly bare by the time our little ones scoffed all the sweets: memo to self: decorate late at night when they are in bed next year.... :)

I can not wait to see what you do!! Ok no testing the roof candy!! lol Grace xoxo

WOW I think they will look too good to eat! You even have cute paper cups ~ :) Have FUN!!!

Can I come? Looks like so much fun!

Have a wonderful time. I make the houses every year with my grandchildren. This year my 3 and 5 year old granddaughters put so........much candy on the roof that it looks like the roof could go at any moment! LOL.

Can't wait to see the little houses!

Yaaaayyy! You are such an awesome aunt. You do realize that your little girl is going to be such a lucky duck, right? :)

and there is nothing like having everything ready so you can just go for it! sweet times!

your blog is so gosh darn pretty. i just caught up over the past 2 months, and then i scrolled back to find the post where the mr. pieced a quilt top to show my mister. he used to live in portland and enjoyed the photography also.

I usually make one every year as well, but my 1 1/2 year old is making it really difficult this year!

Oh, this looks like FUN!!!!! I'm certain you will take a lot of photos. I can't wait to see the post Gingerbread Sleepover photoessay!

whoa, those houses! where'd they come from? homemade?

Woo Hoo! I love the results of the Gingerbread Sleepover! Have fun... and we'll see you in the morning!

Oooh! Looks like you are in for a LOT of fun! Can't wait to see how they turn out. Can I eat some please?

What a great aunt you are. Your blank gingerbread house looks great already. The candies will make for the prettiest houses ever.

Yum yum, do you have an
