More Gingerbread

My kids love to decorate gingerbread houses.  What kid doesn't?  The last time they did one I bought a kit and gave it to their grandparents (DH's mom and dad) to do with them.  This time I bought a kit again but those same grandparents are in West Virginia.  So I gave it to my mom and dad (their more local grandparents) to do with the kids. 

It was so hilarious watching my mother panic.  She really isn't crafty at all and the more I laughed, the more she said, "this isn't funny."  She even told my son that she flunked out of arts and crafts when she was in school.  Do they even have an arts and crafts class?  She did give it her very best effort and no help from my dad I might add.  Although he did suggest propping the roof panels up with some popsicle sticks because they were sliding off.  But he was definitely keeping his hands out of it.  I suggested watching a movie while we waited for it to harden some before adding more candy.  It was getting a bit heavy and the roof just wanted to slide right off.  I am SO helpful.

And look it came out beautifully when all was said and done.  And now the kids have a very strange yet funny memory made with Memere.

Decorating a gingerbread house has LONG been a 'must do' on my 'to do' list. What a fab result!
