Gingerbread Nightmare

Last Saturday night we hosted a sleepover for a small army of kids and I had the brilliant idea of keeping them busy by building gingerbread houses.  It was an absolute nightmare trying to get six gingerbread houses to keep from collapsing while the icing dried.  And trying to teach patience to six kids all cracked out on sugar was impossible.  Everyone cried at some point in the evening including me!  Merry Christmas.

I can't say enough about the $10 gingerbread kits from CostCo--the house is pre-assembled!!! Saves a lot of time, stress and aggravation. Is there a photo of a finished product?

This post made me LOL! I had the "brilliant" idea of making two gingerbread houses (one with each family I babysit for) and they were both disasters!! The box photos are definitely photoshopped!! ;)
