First Annual Gingerbread House-Making Party

This past Saturday, Katie hosted a gingerbread house building/Christmas movie watching party. She went out and bought four kits and went absolutely crazy with all the extraneous items she could think of to use for our houses. She pretty much bought out the candy isle at Schnucks. Once, Kim, Karen and I arrived, we popped in “Scrooged” and went crazy!

I think I was glad that this event wasn’t held at my house because we pretty much trashed Katie’s kitchen and Kuma would have gained about 10 pounds. There were candy, coconut flakes, icing, chocolate, gum, you name it, it was either on the floor, stuck to the table, on our clothes or in my hair. But it was all worth it. Four architectural masterpieces for your viewing pleasure. And, it would be fun if you could vote on which is your favorite! Let the contest begin!





We all agreed that this event will happen again. It was a whole heck of a lot of fun, hanging out, being all crafty and eating as much junk food as we could in four hours. I could not think of a better way to spend a snowy Saturday.

  1. Bob’s prejudiced since he doesn’t want to sleep on the couch so I don’t know if his vote should count. I have to say Katie went all out so she’s got my vote. All were great though and I want to sign up for next year’s event if I can

  2. Okay so Jen I think this is one of those times when I don’t think about what I say or how I say things…so I want to clarify and say I was trying to be funny since I don’t really think Bob could be prejudiced by anything
