The Gingerbread House

Today, my daughter invited me to her school to help her create a gingerbread house with her class.  She has been practicing her songs and talking about if for several weeks now.  She even gave me large guilt trip since I missed her last little activity at Thanksgiving.  Needless to say, I wouldn’t have missed this for the world.

The gingerbread house was, in fact, graham crackers, vanilla frosting, empty school milk cartons, and candy.  It turned out really well and fun.  She enjoyed it and we loaded her house and “yard” up with candy.  And, as soon as she got it home, she of course wanted to eat it.  That’s okay.  It didn’t quite make the trip home as you can see in the photo below.  The roof collapsed and knocked a wall over.  It’s been really nice going to her school activities and helping her with her homework.  It will have lasting memories.  This weekend we are going to make Santa hats and watch old-school Christmas shows like Rudolph and Frosty.  It’ll be a great weekend.
