We have made it a tradition to make a gingerbread house every year. Boogs has been asking for a couple of weeks to make one. So Saturday's countdown box activity was to make a gingerbread house. Boogs was so excited he was ready to start working on it at 7 a.m. We have been opening a countdown box each morning when he wakes up. This year, Boogs was more interested in eating the candy than decorating the house. He started off saying, "One candy for me and three for the house." It turned into, "One candy for the house and three for me."
