It is amazing what you can find in your truck if you decide to clean it up. As I went through everything, I found a 'gingerbread house kit' that I bought from Costco, oh, about 7 months ago. So hurray for us. Nothing says June like making a Gingerbread house. I have made these before, but as I think about it, it was usually with the support of my parents when I was a kid or with my very handy wife. It was my turn to show my stuff and show the boys a good time with frosting, candy and gingerbread.
We had a pretty good beginning. I put on all of the sides of the house, we started decorating. Carter and Beckham took turns in putting the candy on the house. We had a winner...our house was looking great.
Then, tragedy struck. One of the pieces of roof slid off on to the table. I was in disbelief. I knew it was only a matter of time. I quickly started to 'frost' up the roof again to stick it all together, but the damage was done. The other roof slid off, the sides fell in. Beckham stood up to get a better look at the destruction while Carter just looked on amazed that his daddy couldn't even build a simple gingerbread house. I need to hone my skills for this coming Christmas.
