Every year, my kids and I attempt putting together a gingerbread house. Most of the time, it's a dismal failure, with the roof collapsing and the walls crumbling into a swamp of icing. This year, we tried something different: a kit with interlocking walls. It's an architectural feature that helps even the worst gingerbread house builders. And guess what? It worked!
Now, I admit, this is not the most amazing gingerbread house ever created. But I think for us, it's pretty darn good!
If you'd like to see a spectacular gingerbread creation, check out this Hogwarts castle, done by true master gingerbread builders!
I'm not sure if I'll be back before the new year, so, I'd like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
why did those two bears escape to the roof?ReplyDelete
As my daughter explained to me, there is actually a prison on the other side of the gingerbread house. (There are jail bars on the side you can't see.) The bears are escaped convicts.Delete
You and your kids did a fine job on your gingerbread house, dear friend! It is structurally sound and pleasing to the eye. In fact it is so pretty it would be a shame to eat it, but I know Bubba and Shultz will insist. :) The Hogwarts castle is awesome in size and detail, quite an achievement!
I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year as well, dear friend Sherry!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too! I wonder how long it took them to make the Hogwarts castle.Delete
So awesome, I love gingerbread houses! :)ReplyDelete
They're fun to make - unless they're falling down.Delete
Interlocking is a win. Some sure have super skills.ReplyDelete
Interlocking is the best thing ever. Now anyone can get their house to stand.Delete
I never had the skills or patience to make a gingerbread house.ReplyDelete
It's a lot of effort. We do it every year. Tradition.Delete
Oh, fun! Your gingerbread house looks adorable. Hurray for it not collapsing! XDReplyDelete
It's always exciting when it manages to stand for more than 30 minutes!Delete
Good house you built there^ I'm one of the few people I know who eats them a month later, dust and all... Will you?ReplyDelete
I don't eat them at all, but my kids and husband dig into them a few days after they've been built.Delete
I think your gingerbread house is pretty great, Sherry! I don't know where you find the time. Your energy amazes me. Merry Christmas and Blessings for 2019. Hugs, TracyReplyDelete
Haha! People tell me I'm like the energizer bunny. But believe me, by the end of the day, I'm exhausted!Delete
Love the gingerbread house. That's something I've never tried. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.ReplyDelete
Thank you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too!Delete
Nice house! Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jeff! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too!Delete
Yay! Glad you were able to get a gingerbread house that stayed standing up. :) Looks fabulous to me!ReplyDelete
I am in awe of the HP gingerbread village! WOW!
I'm impressed with the Hogwarts castle, too. I wonder how long it took, and how many collapses they had.Delete
Love your gingerbread house :)ReplyDelete
Wish you all a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year!
Thank you! Merry Christmas to you, too!Delete
You are welcome and Happy New year!Delete
Excellent house. When can I move in? You'll have an editor on the premises. It's kind of like the tire shops with signs boasting "Mechanic on Duty."ReplyDelete
Yes. What the house needs is an editor. And you're a darn good one!Delete
Unfortunately the house has been eaten, so I'm afraid it would not be a suitable abode for you.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, my beautiful friend! I love your gingerbread house! Well done! Cool video of the Harry Potter house! Big Hugs!ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too! Big hugs!Delete
Have a wonderful holiday season!ReplyDelete
Wishing you and your loved ones peace, health, happiness, and prosperity in the coming New Year. Thank you for your kindness and caring.
I like the decorations, but I've never cared for the taste of Gingerbread. Guess the decorations are more the point though. Glad you found one that works for you.
Happy New Year to you!Delete
I like gingerbread cookies, but I've never had an interest in eating a gingerbread house. My family likes to eat them, though.
Hooray! It looks better than I could do, so congrats. It just goes to show that there will always be someone worse at something than you :)ReplyDelete
But you are a way-better knitter than I am!Delete
Have a Happy New Year!
