Gingerbread house

My daughter and I made a gingerbread house a couple of days ago.

  We use lemon juice and powdered sugar as glue.

 We didn't have enough dough, so we had to use Graham crackers for one side of the roof.

 She had the idea for a pond with a frog in it.

 It took so much candy.

 And, we had to run back to the candy store 3 times for more candy... She didn't mind.

 She asked if she could choose one candy a day to eat.
Happy Holidays

Winter Fair Pictures

The Winter Fair at the Brooklyn Waldorf School was more fabulous than ever!
There were so many amazingly beautiful and fun activities to do. One of the many highlights was the Enchanted Forest. I was running around the whole day and only found time to snap a few quick pictures with my phone, of the school craft booth.
