Decorating a Gingerbread House

Our homeschooling group is having a gingerbread house contest tomorrow. It's fairly low key as far as I know, but still, we're not expecting to be real contenders by any means. It'll be fun though, getting together with other kids in our group and seeing what everyone else did. AND the kids really did enjoy it.

We just got a gingerbread house kit from Wal-Mart. Actually, it was one of the little chef's birthday gifts. Here it is at the start. They didn't even put it together straight. A certain brother of mine would have been in there with a crow bar to reset the thing correctly. I have no such tendancies. Actually, I had to give the gingerbread house over to God before I started so I wouldn't get upset that no one was doing it the right way. If you listened to the Pineapple Story, you'll know what I'm talking about.

It took a while. One of my sisters called right after we started to destress after a final. I was glad to chat but it set us back by a bit (and also making me forget that I put a kid in the shower-- where IS that kid?!) But here's our finished product. We hope it will last till tomorrow morning.
