Gingerbread Crackhouse


This year I was determined to ice the gingerbread in stages/letting it dry so that the walls could support the weight of the decorated roof. Once I had the walls and roof in place (and dry!) I let Spencer decorate it all on his own. I came back in the kitchen a few minutes later and he said he was finished.
Really Spencer? That's how you wanted it to look?
He is especially proud of the green gummy wreath on the front. I guess even crack houses have one redeeming quality. Just when I was thinking that maybe I should mix up some fresh icing and touch it up, IV came over and said, "Wow Spencer! I LOVE your gingerbread house! Can I taste it?"
It works on a little boy level so I guess that's cool.

You're ahead of us! Our gingerbread house is still in the package. I had hoped to get to it this weekend, but it didn't happen with everything that's going on! Next weekend for sure...I hope! I'm not going to let Riley see these pictures because he'll bug me to death until that thing comes out of the box and the candy is in his hands!

I am happy to report that my Christmas card photo has been taken and printed. Now to assemble cards (if there is time)!
