Ashleigh and Grandma's Gingerbread House of '09

I had to share this to. A couple wknd's ago, the kid's both stayed at Grandma and Grandpa's overnight and I decided to send a gingerbread kit for Ashleigh and Grandma to do. Andrew has no desire to MAKE one, but he can't wait to get into it!! LOL! Little did I know, Grandma had never made one like this before! It ended up taking about 4 hours to complete as the icing was to hard the first time, so Grandma had to make it from scratch from her own recipe and then it was too heavy so the roof caved in...lots of fun! So, in the end, they added toothpicks to hold the roof up and it looks beautiful. Great job guys! Ashleigh said we're not allowed to touch it till Christmas Day, but we had to laugh as we looked and there were 7 spots where there used to be gum drops, so when we asked her where they were, she just grinned from ear to ear. Hmmmm, someone's been sneaking!!
