I absolutely love everything about the Christmas and holiday season from the baking to the shopping to the decorating and definitely to the giving. I think I’m pretty good at most of it too, because people don’t seem to complain. One thing I’m not so good at is gingerbread house making. As a matter of fact, I’ve had more gingerbread house fails than I can begin to count.
Just yesterday as I was pushing my cart through my local Michael’s store I strolled past the gingerbread house display. I won’t lie, I actually contemplated buying one again this year for a hot minute. Then I smartened up and remembered all my past gingerbread house fails.
I have not ever successfully managed to create a decent gingerbread house. I’ve bought the kits for my kids and they manage to eat all the icing and candy before they can even get the walls up. When I try to build one I end up with more icing on my clothing than on my house! It never works! It’s not cute and it’s not fun, it’s just frustrating!
