Our Gingerbread House

Although we had a rough morning (taking a cranky 2 year old to the Bizarre Bazaar was a BAD idea), we had a good afternoon! I decided while he was napping that we would make our gingerbread house today. It was my first one so I wasn't really sure what I was doing but I think the final product turned out ok.

Not bad, huh? We're proud of our masterpiece :) Hope you guys had a great weekend!
