One of my favorite parts of the week is when my son (age 5) wakes up and calls me from his bed to cuddle (yes, he actually calls before getting out of bed and jumping into the day). A few weeks ago during this time, he mentioned that he wanted to invite his new friends in our new neighborhood to have a gingerbread house-making contest. I thought this was a wonderful way to get to know the neighborhood kids and their parents, since we are new to the area. Sounded great – gingerbread houses for the kids, wine and cheese for the parents – and not too much work to put together. Brilliant idea, I thought! And I knew just the design team to create a wonderful invitation! So this is the Gingerbread party invitations the team came up with… cute, cute, cute.
It turns out that this wonderful idea was a 5-year old’s ploy. At the end of the conversation, my son declared that the winner of the gingerbread making contest would win Legos, so really it was about How Do I Get More Legos? No matter, we are still having the party and looking forward to it!
