The Anatomy of a Gingerbread House

This was the first year we bought one of those pre-packaged gingerbread kits, in all its hydrogenated, artificially colored glory.

Everett immediately put himself in charge.


"I'm doing something fun with my brothers and it involves CANDY!"


Sometime around here, 2 year old disappeared.  She was clear across the house.

"No, I don't have a mouth full of candy."


Meanwhile, back in the kitchen.....


It was when I was taking pictures of the finished product that I saw the ever-widening gap on the ceiling.


Going.


Going.


Gone.


The whole thing took an hour, from box to table to mouth.  And it was worth every second, and every penny.

Seven days till Christmas.
