The weather was freezing, so we skipped the Keller Tree Lighting and decided to stay home and make a gingerbread house. We had a kit and it seemed easy enough.
My Junior Baker was dressed and ready to go.
Our architect team was ready to go.
The only problem was that 5 of the 7 pieces were broken. The directions said simply glue them together with icing and everything will be ship shape. Wrong!
We tried to repair it with little hope.
Kaden and I moved on to decorating the ornaments that were also included.
The repair team continued!
Tah-DAH! The tree is complete!
It was also kind of tasty, but also a bit hard!
When did he get so big.
We decided it couldn't be saved.
I was very sad. After the two broken roof tiles wouldn't stay on, Becky attempted to make a Ritz roof. Also no good!
A side view. Meg decided to make stained glass, looks more like the windows are bleeding!
My side! There is the tree Kaden and I made. Turns out it was a bit heavy and was blamed for the walls collapsing.
Still having fun!
It is quite beautiful really and open to the starry sky.
A side view.
Doesn't our look just like the box?
We decided to turn the broken roof into a driveway. Fittingly we put a fire truck in the driveway!
Kaden carefully placed peppermints on each corner.

The building crew in a timed shot. We are thinking about giving up our day jobs to enter some contests.Kaden was over it by now!
Our house is hideous but we had fun and made a nice big mess!
