It's that time of year again.  No, I don't mean candy canes and mistletoe, I mean awesome crafts made by kids!  I have a whole trunk full of stuff my kids have made for me as gifts.  Stuff Treasures I can't bring myself to get rid of, no matter how...beautiful it is.

Part of the Holiday Season for many is the annual assembly of the Gingerbread House.  I cheated and bought the kit.  Because if I bake any Gingerbread I'm eating it and not sticking it to cardboard to look at for the next two weeks.

When we opened the package, every side of the house--the roof, sides, and the base--were in pieces.  Good thing I still had the instructions.  Step 2 told me "if part of your Gingerbread House is broken don't be distressed.  Use the frosting to re-attach the broken pieces and wait 45 minutes."

We did that.  It still fell apart.  We finally got the thing assembled and decorated.  It's a good thing too.  We finished just in time to watch it fall apart/broken/eaten from for the next two weeks.

I do want to note that if Pee Wee Herman made a Gingerbread House it would look JUST...LIKE...THIS!!! (That's a Pee Wee's Big Adventure reference.)
