I told the kids that they could have birthday parties this year, but I just couldn't must up the energy for them. So I told them that we could have a fall party, but that didn't happen. So I decided to do a Christmas party for them and their friends. It was so fun and laid back.
The night before the party I hot glued some graham crackers together for the gingerbread houses. A friend taught me that years ago and I thought it was genius. Then the kids could just decorate the gingerbread houses instead of cry becuase the icing wasn't strong enough to hold the crackers together. #parentwin
We had four girls and four boys, everyone was a brother/sister. It was a great group, and the kids had a lot of fun together. They decorated gingerbread houses, Christmas ornaments with their pictures, we played a white elephant game, and the kids had chick-fil-a chicken nuggets, chips, and jello roll-ups for lunch. They ended the party by playing outside (I love our southern winters).
