Run, run as fast as you can! You can't get me; I'm the ginger....ah never mind

Last year, we started a family activity of decorating a gingerbread house. Last year, Jenn and I assembled this house; last year, Jenn and I had technical difficulties and put the chimney on upside down and other small set backs...walls not wanting to stay together blah blah blah. This year Jenn and I carried on the tradition of having gingerbread technical difficulties. We did put the chimney on properly but it kept sliding on us and we eventually got it to stay. The icing didn't want to stay in the bag and kept popping out the top and getting me extremely sticky and irritated but I kept having fun. So we decorated it. It looks better than last years and it didn't take too long this year before Aren began to dig into the decorations and wreck the beautiful walk way that Cherish and I made. It is so much fun but I am glad I only have this to do once a year....

Nice work! But, next year you'll have to do what I did in university when a group of us were making g.b. houses (I told Bill this the other day).

Gummy Santa facing a pool of yellow icing, and to the left it says "Santa Wuz Here", as tho' he had just left his "mark" on the snow.

Actually, I hvae a picture of that somewehre, maybe I'll do a post about it!
