Several years ago, I had the not exactly brillant idea of making gingerbread houses as a family tradition. Janna, a dear friend of mine, offered to help. My now adult children (all 4 of them) were much younger then, and the idea was that Jana and I would make the houses and the children would decorate them. Well, we made dough....and dough...and there seemed to be SO much dough. We baked and started to assemble houses. They were HEAVY. I mean REALLY heavy. If dropped on someone's head we would be facing murder charges. On top of that, they would NOT stay together. So we used more icing. If we thought they were heavy before this, we quickly found out how wrong we were. While now more suitable for Halloween Houses, crooked with that spooky not quite right look, the children remember the year of those sad, pathetic houses. I threaten every year to try again, and Jana and I STILL talk about that Christms.

LOL!   They sound like it would have been better to eat the gingerbread instead.
