Probably my most memorable (as long as I can remember) tradition is the candy houses we started decorating with my grand parents. My grandfather build these wooden houses for us to cover with icing and candy!!! So when we started our family, he built us one!! Thanks BB and Sugar!!
We use the "seven minute frosting" and LOTS of candy! I'm pretty sure about half of the candy went into their little tummies but a good bit of it got on the house too!!
We always do the hershey bar door, and ice cream cone "trees" and of course the tootsie roll "logs". But the kids put their own ideas into it too.
Above is the side Landon (and myself...but mostly Landon) decorated!!
Lillian slept through most of the decorating, so we showed it to her after we were done.
This is the side Olivia did. A little neater. :-)
Oh, and Landon calls it the "cannycan" house. I guess I haven't corrected him yet...too cute.
