Keeping the Magic

Keeping the Magic: Disney Gingerbread House

It’s been a tradition for our family to put together a Gingerbread House during the Christmas season. We even did this before we had kids of our own. Often gifting it to families in lieu of bringing a bottle wine when invited over for the holidays. This year, while out on a shopping trip with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law we came across a Disney Gingerbread House. It screamed our family. It was promptly purchased and added to the list of things to do as Christmas approached.

Over the weekend we spent time together as family creating our Disney Gingerbread House. There were Mickey and Minnie paper decals to put on the house as well as Mickey Mouse shaped candies. For the first time we read the instructions before constructing our house and found that it stayed together instead of falling apart once we started adding the candy.

We put the walls and the roof on and let it sit for ten minutes. After the ten minutes passed we began put on the delicious looking candy. One side of the roof was for MacKenzie to decorate and the other side of the roof was for Lincoln to decorate.


It was a perfect sized house. Not too large and not too small. It now sits on a shelf in our kitchen waiting to be broken up and enjoyed this coming weekend. This was another example of adding a little Disney to something we already do. Keeping the magic of Disney in our everyday life. It may not be the Gingerbread House you see in the lobby of the Grand Floridian Resort but it will do in the mean time. Merry Christmas Friends.
