Thank the Lord for such a wonderful, restful day. Since I had never spent my birthday money, we decided to take some of it and do something fun.
Neither of us had ever put together or decorated a gingerbread house. The gingerbread house kits were on sale at Wal Mart for $6.00, so we decided to get one and just make Saturday a day of fun and relaxation. The falling snow would make it even more fun since gingerbread houses with icing just seem to go with snow. We also got another kind of candy called "Sno Balls" to add to the candy that was in the kit. Here are the pictures of our fun and of Christy putting houses together.
The two houses in the front are the ones I decorated. It was Christy's idea to make a path with the M&Ms and to add the trees. Her red roof house did end up being OK. We just put it back together again. Some of my green and white icing got stuck on her "chocolate house."
