Lily made a gingerbread house at her friend Parker's this year, and the boys really wanted to make one at home, so I took the easy way out and bought a kit and off we went to make it. I've vowed to never get o.c.d. anymore when it comes to these tasks. It was quite a funny event. The icing was too runny, and didn't set up fast enough. So the house started to slip and slide! The final product is great!
