|From Gingerbread H...|
At the end of the evening, I invited Caroline to come over last night to make gingerbread houses with us. Let's get this straight: I know nothing about making gingerbread houses. It just sounded like a good thing to do. I had bought icing, M&M's & gumdrops that I had used to decorate cookies earlier in the week, so I had the basic ingredients. Except graham crackers. I had to call Caroline & have her & Josh pick those up. I picked up some red-hots and little candycanes as well.
I suppose these weren't TRUE gingerbread houses, not actually containing any gingerbread, but that didn't bother us. We all had trouble getting a roof to be shaped like a triangle. The girls gave up & had flat roofs, the Joshes added a semblance of a triangle to the top of their houses. I had trouble keeping graham crackers from shattering into pieces. I ended up with a pentagonal house with shorter walls :) After making a mess of our dining room table, we utilized the gift we gave Caroline for her birthday and played Catchphrase.
Anyway, check out the crazy fun in the photo album.
