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.
