Nana's Tradition

One of my traditions with the grands
is the annual "Gingerbread Party"

It started when they were very young
and even now as teenagers they
still love their annual party


Supplies were gathered

Aprons were tied on
dough was made

let the party begin.....


They each have their own cookie sheet
for their gingerbread creations

of course they couldn't share one...

you wouldn't want to get your
masterpiece mixed up with your sister's

"Nana, check mine out!!"

messes are made
that's part of the fun!!

Another very important part
of this party is the
gifts they get to open




I have wonderful memories
of "Gingerbread Parties"
past and present

Such sweet times with Nana and her Grands
