My First Gingerbread House

Not too bad for the first go at it. As much as I find reason to bitch and complain during the holiday season, usually about my in-laws, I do really love this time of year. Yes it's stressful, but it's also so wonderful at the same time. This time of year gives you the excuse to make a house out of gingerbread cookies. I did not make this on my own, I had the much needed help of my sister and her daughter. The house construction was literally an all day affair, which at the end of, my sister and I promptly made martinis and sat back to admire our work. My niece also armed with a hot chocolate topped with enough whipped cream to choke a horse also sat back and admired our first ever gingerbread house. Not too shabby. CB being an architect, was not so impressed, apparently there are some structural flaws and the color scheme is horrid, but who cares.

I won't be posting again until after Christmas. I wish all of you the Happiest of Happiest. Take Care. Be Safe. Merry Christmas.
