Gingerbread House

Daddy and Mica started making the foundation of our gingerbread house shortly before Christmas. Daddy worked on the roof. I just love the icicles hanging down! They were going to finish it on Christmas Eve day, but Mica had to go to the Urgent Care to get his ear infection treated. On Christmas night I finished it.

I used Fruit Roll-ups for the door and windows. The stepping stones are gumdrops that were cut in 1/2.

Some type of holly bush is on the side yard.

A holly tree is on this side yard.

I thought I'd feel annoyed finishing this thing. I had many more things to work on! I wanted the mess to go away. In order for that to happen, the project kind of needs to get finished, right?

I actually felt the opposite of annoyed. It was fun and peaceful. Isaak tried helping, but he was more or less bumping into me. Daddy called him away.

We don't make ours to eat. It's just decoration. We had it on the table when guests were over for our dance party.

I like that everyone worked on it. I hope your son's ear is better now. :( The gingerbread house looks great!

It came out so good, but you should totally let them go to town and eat it ;)

I love this!!!! My favorite part is the pretty little wreath over the door. I'm not sure I would ever want to take that off display.

I think you did a great job! We made one last year... and every time you turned around, someone was picking on it to eat... so we didn't this year. lol
