Making a Gingerbread House

Monday night Angela, Connor, Grandma Jamison and I all made a gingerbread house. It was for a school contest. There were three levels we could have entered into. The top level required a fancy house plus photo documentation and an essay to enter. The next level was a peoples choice level and the last level was every ones name got entered into a random drawing. We decided to do the last level. We bought a pre-made house and just got to have the fun decorating it. Connor and Grandma and Grandpa Jamison played in the water at the sink and Connor at the candies. I ended up working the pastry bag as the frosting was a little hard to get out for Angela. She had a lot of fun spreading the frosting all around and decorating it with the candies. I do not know that I would make this a yearly tradition, but it was fun for us to do.
