Final Gingerbread Post (really)…The Best Thing About GB Houses!

I thought I was done writing about this gingerbread project…that was until I got a visit from my best friend, her daughter, and grandchildren.  The gingerbread house made it through the holidays intact, with the exception of the yard items and wreaths that my daughters nibbled on.  My brother laid claim to the house and I was planning to deliver it to his farm this weekend.  He was pretty excited about watching the local wildlife annihilate it.  My guess is that he was planning to film the action for laughs. (our family has an odd sense of humor)

Anyway, my friend and her family stopped by after church on Sunday for a visit.  Her four grandchildren are adorable, sweet, and very well-behaved – they can be my grandchildren anytime they want.  The seven-year old noticed the GB house and wanted to know all about it.  We talked and I handed him a shutter.  I told him it was okay to nibble.  His sisters joined him, and before we knew it, giggles and sugar were flying!  It soon became an obsession to get at the most difficult pieces.

It was such a joy to watch these kids tearing up the house.  They have become my official wrecking crew and will be invited back for the demolition of next year’s project.

I guess I’ll pack up what’s left and head over to the farm with it.  I wish you and yours a blessed and happy New Year.
