I decided that this first ever gingerbread house for our family should be an adventure in creativity by the kids and their friends with little supervision from me. Afterwards I had to sweep then vacuum the kitchen twice but look! Look what they did when given free reign with the sugary stuff, lol! I love it so much.


I grossly underestimated how much icing sugar was needed for such a thing so we ended up sticking the house together and attaching lots of the decorations with hot glue. The roof was coated with a thick layer of paste and candy liberally dumped over it. At the end the kids were wantonly squeezing icing everywhere and quite literally throwing handfuls of candy at the pools of it.


My favourite part is the cereal ice skater on a frozen pond created by my funny daughter. See the wee candy cane skates? ingenious child.


That thing is not exactly beautiful but we had so much fun and I had to show it off, lol.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

LOL - fun is the name of the game - especially as hot glue should never ever ever be considered good eats!  So long as long hair and any pets were kept out of the line of fire, it does look like they had a blast!

The girl took it outside and smashed it with a hammer and now I sure wish I'd taken a video of that, lol!
