Holiday architecture

What better way to spend the Saturday before Christmas than by eating lots of candy and occasionally adding some to a gingerbread house?

I would love to spend the day like that. My bozos would be shoving the cinnamon red hots in their nostrils and blowing them at each other. Do you have an "Adopt a Mommy" program for those of us who'd LOVE the more classical enthusiasm of your girls? And P.S. THAT is a perfect Christmas card photo.

Happy and merry.

Indeed we did much the same thing especially since the icing was too runny to work properly as glue!

I like the the minimalist, spartan-style of this house. Very zen.

Candy is MEANT to be eaten.

Gingy houses are so much fun! One of the awesome bakers in our town makes a giant (8 feet tall) gingerbread house at a local hotel every year. He goes back periodically during the season to replace the missing (eaten) parts!

Nothing better than taste testing the candy prior to using it on the house. Isn't that the way all architects do it?
