We bought a kit at Walmart. It is just so much easier...although Jess and the kids wanted to make a haunted gingerbread house out of grahm crackers. Oh well. You do what you can do.
They all tried very hard to make those big candies stick before they fell off again. Grant didn't even eat any of the candies. I was so proud. :)
The house lasted about one hour before it was taken apart and eaten. I was surprised -it was actually pretty good gingerbread.
