This Christmas, our gingerbread house building party was epic. Just completely epic. And I can say that because I have
I set up the table as usual ready for the party. We decided to use the Jack Skellington Breakfast Twigs to hang some pink, green and purple mini baubles off to disguise the stairs this year and it made everything seem more Christmassy – we had no snow again this year in Hampshire [boooo].
Last year the house set up was easy as they were pre-glued from Costco but this year Costco let me down and only had DIY ones. So the night before I was
As the houses were still standing in the morning, after breakfast I popped everything out onto the table as their eyes grew wider and wider. We can’t thank you enough, ShopDisney! We had a talking Vanellope von Schweetz doll with removable hairclips, some Pop Vinyl figures [I not so secretly tried to acquire these], a WHOLE set of characters [hello cupcake toppers!] and a big, cuddly Ralph which Hero fell in love with instantly.

It took them a good hour to finish, and then we tidied up to display them for Gav.
The boys managed to create their own independent houses this year [Hero had a little bit of help from Gav] which was the first time ever – usually they pop a few sweeties on, and get distracted. But not this time – Lyoto decided that this, his very first-ever epic Wreck-It Ralph 2 Gingerbread Party too, should be a “thing” like the Jack Skellington Breakfast every year.
