When does something become a tradition? After two times? I hope so, otherwise I would I feel kind of silly saying that us making gingerbread houses is a tradition with it only being Sydney's third Christmas. (that was a really long sentence) Whether its technically been done enough time, I'm calling it one! =) This past weekend we had a lot of fun TRYING to making one heck of a Gingerbread House. Notice the emphasis on trying? Every year (for the past three years) we have used one of those pre-made ginger bread houses that seem so easy because they already have cookies made and in the shapes you need for a house. Great huh? WRONG! I don't know how other people do it, but the roof on that thing has never once stayed on. We try and we try, and this year I even busted out the toothpicks to get it stay. NO GO.
Regardless, we had tons of fun trying!
Do you and your family make gingerbread houses?
Started out good as we ice the house together
Diapers-n-Heels girl likes to separated all the yellow candy from the others (her fav)
The roof is starting to look good
And the house takes a digger! DOH!!! Next year, I will be making the cookies myself. Right size proportions!
Don't worry we have this pride out for display in the front room. hahahah Till next year Ginger Bread House!!!
