I made this!

I was up in Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving yesterday. After a delicious dinner, it was family craft time! Grandma Linda picked up three gingerbread house kits, and each of her kids and their families had to assemble and decorate one. Somehow I ended up working with not with my brother Andy and sister-in-law Charity, but Charity's sister Becky, her husband Mike, and their son Garnet. Here's the house we made:

It was a true group effort. Mike and I glued the house together (we used hot glue guns, which I suppose is cheating but works exceedingly well); Becky iced the roof; Garnet put the candy on the roof; I put the gumdrops and wreaths on the ends of the house, and made the guy (his name is Ikey) and the satellite dish; and Mike piped the windows and sculpted the chimney. I think it turned out pretty well!
