Gingerbread isn't only for Christmas

On days when Daddy is at work we seem to hit the crafts and baking hard so this was super fun because it involved some crafting and some baking. The added bonus was that we got to eat up our creations when we were done. Jackie was in charge of mixing the dry ingredients and Benny in charge of running the mixer. This was a bit of a thrill because it was the first time Ben got to do it all by himself! Much patience was needed here because the dough had to be chilled overnight and there was also a trip to the bulk store to pick our decorating candies. Of course there were a few bumps in this road. We didn't have our usual plastic baggies for the frosting. Tried to substitute wax paper but this didn't really work (exploded every time!). Also had a bit of trouble fitting the pieces together necessitating a complete rebuild after the first build but the good thing about gingerbread houses and little boys is all they see is the candy not the mistakes!
