Our Gingerbread House 2011

Every year, the children look forward to decorating a Gingerbread House.  Usually, I buy the kit that has the house already put together and all you have to do is decorate it.  This year, Walmart did not have any of those.  So, we bought the only one they had which luckily came with a tray with slits for the walls to stand up in.  Chelsea helped me put the house together and then decided to occupy Emelia and let the "little kids" do all the decorating.  You are supposed to wait 15 minutes after putting it together before decorating.  It was the longest 15 minutes of my children's lives!  They were so impatient to start putting candy on.  Even after waiting the 15 minutes, we had some trouble with the roof sliding down several times but we managed to get it decorated without it collapsing.  This kit also did not come with any decorating tips, so you couldn't get very fancy with the icing.  It did come with a little gingerbread man and a Christmas tree though and the little ones loved that!
