Our Gingerbread Tree

This weeks tackle is a family tackle actually.....all together the four of us put together and decorated a Gingerbread Tree. For the past 3 years we have done this each and every year all together....and Little Man really looks forward to it!! We usually put together a Gingerbread House, but this year Little Man spotted a Gingerbread Tree at the craft store and thought it might be fun to make one of those instead. So we all agreed....a Tree it will be this year!!

Here are Little Man and Little Miss getting ready to begin!!

Here is the Tree stacked up and iced in between the layers...Little Man is patiently waiting a few minutes for it to dry a little.

Here is Little Man putting the snow on.....

And now the other side of the Tree....

And here it is...the finished Tree!! Isn't it pretty??

All in all it took us a little over and hour and a half to put together and decorate the tree. We listened to Christmas songs on the radio and had a great time laughing and decorating it all together!! This is one of those great everlasting memorable tackles!! And now she sits Oh so pretty on Little Man's bedroom dresser....as he was so excited to be able to have a tree in his room for the holidays!!

Curious to see what others are tackling this week? Head on over to 5 Minutes For Mom to check them out!!
