I swore I wouldn't do a gingerbread house this year. I honestly don't like them. Mine never turn out, they get me frustrated and my kids get dirty (I know, I should be use to this.)
Well my kids begged and pleaded to do one. I thought, "Wow, out of all the things that we do, they remember us making Gingerbread houses!" Why not?? Its all about making memories and these are things I want my kids to remember.
So we put the house together, got out the candy and I followed the directions to a T. Did you know you have to let it sit for 15 minutes before decorating? Well I didn't know that. Explains the reason its never worked before.
And whats making a gingerbread house without posing in front of it.
So we waited 15 minutes and well, I am shocked....
So we started with decorating the roof with peppermints and lights.
And well time quickly moved by and before we knew it.
We were done. I'm proud, my kids did good with my help of course.
I love making memories...
