We survived building our first gingerbread house. It was actually an easy kit from Trader Joe's. (Thanks to my friend Hnou, who gave us the idea!) Not too much icing smeared on the table and most of the candy did end up on the house. Not sure if the house will pass building code, though, with my sloppy piping job. Hopefully no earthquakes, eh? Merry Christmas, everyone! We look forward to celebrating God's gift to us. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and cozy holiday!
