And so began my quest to find us a gingerbread house kit (because I wasn't brave enough to give it a go from scratch). It didn't take long. Those things are everywhere during the holidays and my mother-in-law picked one up for us on a great Black Friday sale. Made by Wilton it had everything we needed to put out gingerbread house together.
It was about 3 weeks ago that Grant and I put it together. He loves to help in the kitchen and was actually a part of a lot of my Christmas baking endeavors, so I knew he'd love a project that was just for him. I trimmed the pieces while Grant snuck the crumbs into his mouth. Then I put the house together with the frosting. After that was the real party:
|He kept telling me "More candy! More! More!"|
|When we were all done he yelled "We did it!"|
|So proud of himself!|
BUT also last weekend at BJs I found a gingerbread man decorating kit (contains 3 kits!) and I plan to surprise Grant with that one weekend soon. And he'll really like that because we'll be able to eat it.
