When time is short, we cannot always make both gingerbread men and the traditional gingerbread house. So which one do we pick?
I polled my four darlings and got a vote of two for the men and two for the house. I guess my husband will be the tie-breaker. Of course after telling everyone that we would make either the men or the house this year, I got much complaining and whining.
I solved the problem by telling my oldest children they can organize, assist, and supervise the making of the traditional gingerbread house. They also offered to shop for the candy and gingerbread house kit.
Life gets easier and easier as the children get older! Please share photos of your gingerbread men and houses!
