Confession

I'm pretty sure I never made a gingerbread house...ever...up until last weekend. I can't believe I've been missing out on the fun all these years. I bought a couple gingerbread house kits for $9.00 each. They were something like this. I also bought extra candy (safe for E with no nuts) and some frosting (just in case the icing didn't work). Little Miss and I first assembled a small one together while her big brother was in school. I thought it may be a good idea to test it out first. Then, the next day we gathered our supplies and created...they had a blast and it kept my boy focused for quite some time...not always an easy thing to do these days. Here are the results.


Here's E with a wad of gum in his mouth. After eating half the supplies, I thought it wise to give him something else to chew on...it worked....but, a little too late. He and his sister were bouncing after the gingerbread craft.










Next year I think I'll try some of
these.


"And I had but one penny in the world. Thou should’st have it to buy gingerbread."
– William Shakespeare, Love’s Labours Lost

I love these!...we made our first attempt at a gingerbread house this year too.
I love your pictures and the style you use... do you use photoshop at all? I'm trying to teach myself elements..which is quite the work in progress for me.

Thanks Liss! Yes, your post got me motivated to try it. I do not really edit the pictures all that much. Generally, whatever minimal editing I do do, I do in Picasa, which you can download for free. It's more of a program for viewing photos, but it has super easy editing options as well. I have used Photoshop for some things and still do every now and then, but it is not the easiest program to navigate. Thanks for your comment. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
