Life Updates!!!

No comments:
Finally, I have the time to post an update, and honestly, I don't know where to begin. How about this?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!!! 

I know, I'm too early for next year hahaha :D but better late than never sabi nga nila!

OMG, I got so busy and caught up in all the action during the holidays, I never even had the chance to post a greeting here on the blog. To make up for the lost time and to ward off all the dust and cobwebs here, I'll just give you a random update of what has transpired with our life during the holidays.

The first thing I remember now is how much fun we had during the bloggers Christmas party. 2015 was my year of friendship, these are the wonderful bloggers and their family I am privileged to be friends with online and offline. Beautiful, unique and witty people!

Easy Gingerbread House

No comments:
I never made a gingerbread house before. It is not part of our holiday traditions while I was growing up and since my kids are growing far from our home country,  they were not able to experience and practice Filipino Christmas traditions but it doesn't mean they have to skip the Christmas cheer! More importantly, as Christians, I make sure they are aware of why we are celebrating this very special occasion.

At home, we made some gingerbread house last Thursday night, on Friday we went to Dubai Mall to see Santa Clause at Hamley's so they can give him their Christmas wish list. I also bought for them some advent calendars to make the countdown more exciting. They are so excited of Christmas, they are looking forward to this day and can't wait to open their gifts, also some of our friends, relatives and my brother will be joining us on Christmas Eve.


This is an easy gingerbread house recipe, I opted to get graham crackers instead of baking the bread, I have no time to bake and I am not sure how it will come out as I have not baked ginger cookies before.

We used 6 graham crackers for each house, a serrated knife, some chewy candies (orange and watermelon) saltine crackers with different shapes, and icing (one or two egg whites mixed with 1 lb confectioners sugar)

They all turn out fine and the kids love it. This one is Mica's design with my help.

This house is more elaborate, it's for Prince and Daddy helped him to put up the chimney over there

This one is for Lance, my nephew. The final product has a chimney but I have no photo of it though.

It wasn't that hard at all and it was such fun making gingerbread houses. I promise next year to bake the bread. It will be more work but it will be awesome.

I wish that the kids would somehow remember us doing this, maybe if we do it every year and then it's going to be part of our family's own Christmas traditions.
