A couple weeks ago, my friend Isdhara and our families got together for a "Love Shack" party. Yeah, I know that sounds kind of kinky, but I swear to you, especially since children were involved, that it was not at all.
It was a "LOVE" gingerbread house party. Instead of making a gingerbread house with Christmas decor, we used Valentine's Day candy. This was the coolest idea I had heard in a while. Plus considering I couldn't recall EVER making a gingerbread house myself (correct me if I'm wrong, Mom), I was so in.
Here's some great highlights:
LMA is not a candy kid - not sure who's kid he really is - but he loved licking the frosting and eating the valentine peeps. Most of the time, LMA and Little Sprout were playing while the women constructed the house, but it was fun!
Here's what the final project looks like:
Happy Valentine's Day!
