Gingerbread House



Last weekend Cub and I worked on our gingerbread house...I'm not that great at baking....so I just buy the kit. And I learned a lot over the last few years...I bought a pre-made house this time....because last year there were tears ....




We of course added some extra candy because those kits come with some really dumb stuff...



And I have to say this is the best results we've had yet. But let me just ask....what is the etiquette on the house situation???? Cubby wants to start eating the candy off of it as soon as he places the last gum drop on.....I at least want to enjoy it for 24 hours before he starts picking at it. What are you doing out there bloggy friends??

ahhhh....take pics and then dig in:) I love it! I've never bought one because I too think they come with dumb stuff but thanks for the idea on doing your own thing:) It's fabulous!

Happy Holidays:)

I love it! I didn't know you could buy them already assembled. And no, I couldn't let them eat the candy - just buy extra and let them munch from the bowls of candy. I kept our last gingerbread house for two years- it just got ruined in the move :( I'm hoping we have time to make another this year but it's not looking too promising...

So cute ~ besides the kids' kindergarten holiday party where they make them at school (ie. lots of little 5 year old hands in all of the goodies....ish....) I've never made one with my kids. Maybe this year will be the year. We were in Pitt a few weeks ago and saw all the super cute gingerbread houses downtown ~ There were some really great ones!!!
