Frugal honest fun!

Today, yes several days after the holidays, my boys got to do a gingerbread house. 
I have been seeing all these fun posts and pictures on blogs I follow and decided...I want to do that. 
There was a sneaky part of me that wanted to post it and say we did it before the holidays.
But I am going to be honest and I CREATED our frugal fun by waiting until everything was 75% off.  So this lovely reindeer village that only cost me $3.50 had enough stuff to decorate - there was no arguing about who did what!
And since it only cost $3.50... 
I won't feel bad about throwing it away on Tuesday!

What "sweet" pictures...dork joke by're welcome. They look great!

We threw ours away the day we did them...Husband couldn't stand the smell. I had a cold.

Note to self: Get those cute little muffin tins...I love all that you do with them!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for posting this! I was at Target yesterday when I snagged the last gingerbread house (partly broken) for 90% off (99 cents!). DH and the little guys (16 mos and 3yo on Tuesday) made it tonight while I was gone with the 13yo. He took pictures and video for me and said they had an absolute blast.

I think buying a clearance gingerbread house will have to become a new family tradition!
