For a few years now my family has been building a Christmas Eve tradition. While not nearly as elaborate as the picture to the right, my family builds a ginger-bread house. It is a sticky, gooey process. My wife bakes the walls and roof pieces. I build the house. My daughters take glee in all the trimmings laid out before them. We all love decorating the house with all the sugary trimmings.
The house never really turns out the way I think it should. It's not really that square. It leans a bit. The kids argue over where the trimmings should go and then giggle with delight when they sneak some trimmings to eat.
In the end, we've all had a great time. We've made some memories we'll share for years. We've spent some time together in one place at the same time.
It's like a miracle. Here are some really "Over-the-Top Gingerbread Houses"
From the staff at Design Basics and HER Home Magazine, have a safe and Merry Christmas!
