Just about every year the kids make a gingerbread house. Some years we've made them with with friends. Sometimes we've made it from scratch (although I always have a hard time getting the frosting to the right consistency), other years we've bought a kit. Yesterday I saw one at Wal-mart and decided to buy it. After we got home the kids begged me to put it together, but I had done so much that day I just wanted to relax. In the morning, the first thing they wanted to do was put together the gingerbread house. So, at 8:30 am we put the kit together.
