So i have this book that has a bunch of fun holiday crafts and ideas. In my quest to not be a scrooget i have done two: make christmas ornaments out of tin foil and make a gingerbread house. Really the gingerbread house is made out of a soda box 4 pack. Rob did the sides, back and landscape. i did the front and the roof. after we were done we giggled about it being the ugliest 'gingerbread' house we'd ever seen. so i thought i'd share the laughs. don't worry, next years will be better.Back of house (this had me giggleing the most)notice how the candy canes slid down and made a pile at the bottom. i have no idea what rob's vision was with this.
side--candy cane crumbs (*note the icing should be wet when applying) also, i love how my windows are totally crooked lol
Aerial view. (i had fun with the roof) Rob's landscape looks great!! He reminded me why: he is a landscape designer. silly jill, i shoulda know
Overall we had a blast with this. i am not the most creative woman ever and rob has all the artistic talent between the two of us. we are looking forward to when Caleb can do his own. Merry Christmas!!
