WW #86 "Gingerbread House"

It is becoming a tradition for my daughter and I to make a Gingerbread House at Christmas time. I think this is our 3rd or 4th year doing it.

Although we never seem to learn from past mistakes. We still got the one you have to put together yourself, we still did not wait long enough for it to dry to start decorating it, the roof still slid all apart at least a dozen times, and there was still crying and screaming.

But after it was finally put together this is how it turned out:

Gingerbread House

And after it was all said and done my daughter told me: "she loved me to pieces," "I was the best Mommy in the whole world," and that I was "awesome." So I guess it was worth it in the long run.

She has fun decorating it - so next year I hope to learn from our mistakes and buy the one that is already put together and you just do the decorating. But I doubt it.

  5. I love it. My girls love decorating the best as well. You can never have enough candy on the houses. Of course they always tend to eat half the supplies along the way.

  9. I tried to put a gingerbread house together once with my boys it went about as well as yours did, except I was the one screaming (at the house) and they just wanted to frost it and eat it! Glad yours turned out! Happy WW!

  11. Hey I am going to make one this year on Friday. So I was looking online and a hint that one site used was to get it to dry faster use the hairdryer on the cool setting.
    It looks super cute and many parents wouldn't have gone through with all the screaming your a great mom!
