Gingerbread House Building

Before Big Sister's school let out for holiday break, they hosted a gingerbread house-making night for students and family. Dad stayed home with the little ones, so I got to take a crack at my construction skills.

Here's what we learned:  

--Neither of us have very good construction skills

--Other people cheated by bringing in their own gingerbread house building kits

--Sometimes it helps to just let your house crumble and start over

--It's always fun to call in extra help!

Big Sis hard at work.  See that focus!

Our "extra help" that came to our rescue.  My friend Keisha, who is always up for a creative challenge!

Mama and Big Sis with the final product.

Surprisingly, we got this done in the one hour time frame we were allotted.  Also surprisingly, the gingerbread house made it home without falling down.  Once home, it was all we could do to keep Boy Twin from taking it apart, piece by piece.  We sure had fun and got messy.  This was my first attempt at making a gingerbread house...I think it turned out great.  Nice teamwork and great kindergarten memories!


  1. It is one of my favorite nights of the year. We are (my family) terrible at it but it is so much fun. Ours made it on the ride until we were about ONE block from our house. :( But you are so memories.

  2. Not bad at all! I am happy to see that Becca enjoys being "artsy". It's nice to have Keisha around to help. Since you don't have much spare time to talk, I always enjoy your blog updates. I hope we get some time to visit while you are all here....

    Love to all...
