Photo Friday – The Gingerbread House

by Wendy Gabriel

One of our favorite Christmas traditions is the making of the Gingerbread House. Since I love gingerbread almost as much as chocolate, it takes all my powers of self control not to gnaw off the roof before it’s assembled. This year we discovered it’s easier to decorate the walls and roof before assembling the structure, Little Greek goddess has a future in cake decorating and Baby Greek goddess loves little gumdrops with a passion.

And I had but one penny in the world. Thou should’st have it to buy gingerbread. ~William Shakespeare, Love’s Labours Lost

    Wendy I love it! I think this is such a magical time as a mom! Oh and I’m with you on gnawing on the roof… and eating the sweets attached to the houses. Will power! Thanks for sharing.
