We lost electricity Friday afternoon and it finally came back Monday while we ate lunch. It sounds like it should have been a horrible weekend, but we really enjoyed most of it. Thankful for a family who enjoys roughing it together.
We have enjoyed making ginger bread houses before, but this is the first time in a long time we created them from scratch. We split up in teams; Andrea and Megan made one house, Audrey and Adrian worked together on another and Allan and I designed one. Andrea baked the gingerbread last night and each team “glued” them together to sit overnight. This morning we spent a few hours decorating our houses.
We had so much fun, that we decided to make this a yearly tradition. Except next year we plan to draw names for teams. All of the houses turned out wonderfully and we will enjoy them a few days before “maybe” eating them.
