The Christmas activities started with Gingerbread House making. Peggy is the ginger bread expert so when they are in town and she is up for it, the kids get to get their creative on. Peggy steps up her game each year. This year the houses were a replica of the boat dock at Lake Anna, so lots of fun memories for the kids. Each family worked on their dock together.
Part of the fun of making ginger bread houses is eating the candy while you make them. That became a little trickier since Maura can't whatever/whenever. We had her pick out the candy she wanted to eat and gave her a snack with it, so while they built she still got to have all her favorite candy, just within 30 minutes. She rolled with it, no problem.
