The Trouble Maker
This year I got kits from Trader Joes that were mostly corn free except for a few pieces of candy that we subbed out for corn-free ones for Peanut. This resulted in more uniform looking houses and made it a little easier - but I think I prefer the more free-form house from last year. Next year, I think we will go back to those even if they aren't as fancy. This year, we had less eating and more creating and decorating. Little Man's house is uniform and perfect, Peanut was concentrated and wielded the pastry bag like a pro and Sweet Pea, well, she was cute and had fun while making a mess. The kids ate the candy off of the roof a little at a time over the course of a week until the tree and the roof were bare.... and we cut them off due to really old stale candy.
Gingerbread making is definitely a annual event in this house now and one worth the trouble and the mess for sure.
