Ginger Bread house

I have always wanted to make a gingerbread house! I want to make it with that delicious gingerbread that is firm enough to stand up but that tastes like rich ginger bread (not cardboard). However I am not there yet. Maybe when I don't have little babies around. Alexander made one at school and I though it was adorable (even though it looks like an elf shack :) ) He brought it off the bus and I loved it and wanted to display it on the dinning room table. He had other plans for it. As soon as I started driving home he was demanding that I give it back because he was going to eat it (I put it in the front seat for safe keeping) I asked him if he wanted to save it for a little while.


As soon as we got in the door he started trying to open it. I told him I needed to take a picture with the camera so he waited. I took the picture and 30 minutes later there was nothing but discarded candy everywhere. I am wondering if it will be different the first time Eva brings one home. If she will want to display it and save it or do the same. We shall see.

Merry Christmas
