Gingerbread house 2008

All ready to go, think it's hardened enough so it won't collapse like last year, LOL..
So far so good...
What happened to my helpers, eating on the job, LOL...
Finished ..
I laughed at this picture, it looks like Jillian is thinking about ripping off the roof and devouring it.

We have had another snowy, blustery day with frigid temperatures. We are starting to get cabin fever, I think it's a little too cold for playing outside. It is great for getting the skating rink started, we need to flood it again tonight, the girls are ready to skate!
We are making sugar dough tonight so it can be ready to go for Santa cookies, we'll bake them Christmas eve.
Hope your having a great day..

I love the gingerbread house. It came out great. I had to buy the kit twice. The first fellapart. I had 3 very eger helpers and they were more interested in eating then waiting for the glue to dry. The second I made the house before hand and then let Emilee decorate it. She wanted to do it all herself. you can tell by looking at it, but I love it

I especially love that last one of Jillian thinking about ripping the roof off...too funny! You guys always have so much fun. I hear ya on the cabin fever. We were starting to get it when the snow was over 2 feet, but lickily we got a warm spell and it is nice to get a break from the white stuff for a while at least.
