Two days before Christmas my son married his longtime girlfriend so my best present this year is a new daughter and a 10 year old granddaughter.  We spent Christmas Eve reviving a tradition that we had when our son was young.  I baked the gingerbread the day before and everyone helped put the house together and decorate it.  What a wonderful night we had.
 The house is over a foot high and completely gingerbread, royal icing and candy. It came out much bigger than I intended and weighed about 10 lbs.  The day after Christmas the neighborhood kids all joined in to help demolish it.

front view, the roof is corn chex

back view, dots make the lights on the roof, starburst candy chiminey and skittles on the tree



my son and his daughter adding the roof tiles.

there was cereal and candy everywhere but we had so much fun making it.

That is quite the undertaking; I can't believe how big it is!
