Gingerbread Houses

We made gingerbread houses today.  And before you go thinking I’m some wonderful mom who handmade the gingerbread, bought loads of different candies and built houses for the kids, I didn’t.  I paid for someone else to take care of all that.  And I would highly recommend you do the same.  No stress, lots of candy, no clean up.  They even wrap them up for transport.

Locally, our United Way does this event each year.  And it’s so well-done, so much fun and so worth it.  I’m happy to support the United Way because they support so many in our area.  I have been fortunate enough to have taken one course sponsored by them and am currently taking another.  And that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to ALL they do.

We went last year, you can read about it here. Since we had so much fun last year, we went again, same crew, same sore bellies full of candy.  We are talking about 20 different kinds of candy, a tray to fill with said candy, hot chocolate and cookies all served up with a smile.  The only limiting factor was your imagination.  Or, if you ate the last candy.  Or your mother perhaps ate it…. Or maybe you ate all the icing intended to be used as glue.

We ate way too much candy, laughed, made a huge mess.  But we made awesome houses and great memories.  Let’s do it again next year!  And you’re invited, too!
