What better treat could there be, on the first day of advent, than an afternoon spent as a family at a gingerbread house workshop, run by my blogging friend, the lovely Emma Bradshaw? As you can see by the pictures, the boys had an absolute whale of a time going crazy with the sweets and icing! D had been (vainly) hoping for a minimalist affair, and I had a dream of delicately piped decorations, but it was one of those occasions when you just have to sit on your hands and let youthful creativity run its course.

If you fancy having a go at making your own gingerbread house, Emma sells the recipe and templates in her online shop for a mere 99p. Just be sure to stock up on plenty of sweets…
