Gingerbread House

Yay!! I finally got the Christmas gifts sent off in the mail today. The post office was a mad house with everyone trying to mailing their gifts off. But at least it's done and the gifts should arrive before Christmas day. :) ok, back to regular posting.......

Every Christmas, I always wanted to make a gingerbread house but have never gotten around to do so. Well, this year, I finally did one. I bought a gingerbread kit from Costco for $10. It comes complete with the gingerbread, icing and one whole pound of candy!

First the construction. That was the easy part.


Then the eager little one happily started to decorate. She decorated the roof, the front of the house and was having a lot of fun until ....... she realized that she was not allowed to eat those candy. Slowly she began to lose interest........ sigh........


So this mommy ended up decoratingthe gingerbread house all by herself!! :(



Anyway, it turned out pretty cute, eh? hehe.... Luckily we don't have any ants in the house, so I can just leave the gingerbread house on the mantel on top of the fireplace.

Interesting. I wonder if they sell this at Costco in UK. I think Ikea sells gingerbread house too.

I don't blame your little girl for losing interest. :) Can touch sweets but cannot eat. So not fair. :P
