This year's gingerbread house!
This is one of the fun things I love about a blog. Before the blog I could only show fun things like this to poor innocent passers-by. And now I can show you all! Last night was the annual gingerbread house decorating night. I have to say here that I bless the person that came up with the gingerbread house kit every year. I love this activity but if I actually had to bake and cut out all the pieces let's face it there is no way it would be happening this time of year. But if all I have to do is buy the kit, fix a little frosting and scrounge the remaining Halloween candy, then we have a great family night. I bought this one at Trader Joe's, which by the way is as good as I had heard. It even came with the cute little marzipan people although we were a bit disturbed, wondering where the father was but the kids decided he was inside paying bills! I have seen these kits everywhere now, the craft store, Wal-mart and Target even. I do recommend them although I really miss that great gingerbread smell!
