Gingerbread house


Our first gingerbread house turned out okay. I have always wanted to make one so Cara went and got a kit for me at Michaels. There was a lot more to it than I thought. It turned out okay but I dont think I am going to get hired into the cake decorating business any time soon! I still want to take a class just because it is kind of fun!! Anyone want to join me?? The girls thought it was fun and Ellie is very proud to show it off. We will see how long it lasts before Aubrey just chomps into it, or Ellie picks all the candy off! Hopefully this becomes a family tradition and eventually the girls can do it more on their own.

Val, this is so impressive! I think it looks awesome! Maybe I can hire you to start this family tradition at our house, since I have no patience for "building" a gingerbread house!

Nice! Paul's mom made a similar gingerbread house with Kaelan a couple of years ago - they had a blast!
