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.
