Gingerbread House fun



The finished product. 


Jamey and I decided that Alyssa might like a gingerbread house...and so today we embarked on this little bit of family time. In actuality she didn't give a big hoot about it, but he and I enjoyed it. Sadly we have made one every year for the last 4 years or so. We actually had 2 gingerbread houses because the first house was a disaster! Above is house # 2 and below is house # 1. House #1 was a Spongebob Pineapple house (I wouldn't recommend purchasing this variety!) and the icing literally pooled around the thing. We took it back and then bought a more traditional variety and proceeded to make it. Alyssa didn't care much for the construction but she did enjoy eating the candy off the house and she tried to eat a little of the gingerbread as well. You can see her candy colored drool down the front of her shirt. Jamey actually did all the decorating and he did a marvelous job.
