When I was a kid I had a storybook about The Gingerbread Man and two stuffed dolls. I never remember making a gingerbread house during the holidays. It is something I always wanted to do.
Christy and I just finished our gingerbread house. It was fun and a good practice in patience for me. I usually don't enjoy projects that cannot be started and finished in one sitting. I got everything ready yesterday: trimmed the pieces, fixed a broken piece, and did the stencils.
Then this morning I did the sides, front and back. Later I did the roof. Then I had to wait...and wait.
Christy and I decorated and voila! Gingerbread house. I love it and want to do another one...next year.
