Gingerbread House Night at Elder Grove

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Elder Grove Schools invited parents to come out to the school Tuesday night and make gingerbread houses with the family.

Nearly 70 people came out to build their own gingerbread houses. The Baumann family says it's a family tradition.

"We just came out to have some fun building some gingerbread houses at the school," said Jamie Baumann, a parent of three kids at Elder Grove Schools.

After asking two of Jamie's daughters, Chloe and Layla, what they put on their houses, they responded, "Gum drops, candy, frosting, lots of candy. I always like just playing with candy and frosting and getting a mess everywhere."

"My mom and I always used to so I kind of wanted to pass that tradition along to them as well," Jamie said. "I guess the best memory is putting as much candy on it as I possibly could and just get to use my creative side."

The family is glad they could do something together outside of the house.

"I just like having all our family together working together, spending family time," Chloe said.

"I think family time is just really important," Jamie said. "Making memories and spending time together. I just hope we had a great family moment, enjoyed the time together and got to express their creativity as well."

The family fun night was a part of Elder Grove's adult education program.
