I decided a long time ago another Gingerbread house would not come into my house.  Things change especially when my granddaughter came in with one.  So we sit and put it together yesterday.  Frustration mounted but we finally got the sides to stay together and found the other part of the roof in the floor.   Then the fun began as we put on the decorations.  All in all it wasn't bad and we did have fun.

Secretly, I  really hope to never do that again!  

How's it going in your neck of the woods?

  1. Awwww look at that happy face!
    Your gingerbread house looks great, and I know she will have a happy memory.
    I secretly hope I never have to carve another jack o lantern. :D

  2. My daughter - late 20's - loves making gingerbread houses. However, even she gets fed up with them. Her 2020 version of a gingerbread house - 2 pop tarts propped together to look like a tent. She's kind of done with 2020 - like most of us. Ann

    1. Oh yeah actually love that tent idea. What a great imagination she has

  3. When my son was young we did a few gingerbread house kits....I agree...they are such a pain. I learned to put the house together alone then after it set for a day, decorate it with my son. I've seen online where some people use a hot glue gun to put them together. Most people don't eat them. I've also read that white almond bark works better than the frosting.

    I actually wanted to buy the little village kit to do with my grandson. It has four tiny houses & I would put them together & just let him decorate one. But I can't find one now that I'm ready to buy....they're all sold out! I may just make gingerbread men & read 'Baby Gingerbread' with him instead.

    It's hot here, mid 60s, 70s tomorrow. We went to the park & had a picnic.

    1. that was my mistake...always put the thing together first.
      Man it's a warm winter so far for you! A picnic sounds wonderful.

  4. I haven't made a gingerbread house in years. I enjoy looking at them. What precious memories you are creating with your family! Merry Christmas!

    1. Some people are so good at this sort of thing..I hope she remembers having fun decorating it. She was actually sort of good for her age. Merry Christmas!

  5. Oh how I agree with you! My husband said some construction adhesive like Liquid Nails should do the trick!

  6. If you buy another kit, get a preassembled gingerbread house, the walls and roof are already put together and then you just add the candy with squirt frosting. Much easier, no frustration and just as cute and fun!
