The traditional Gingerbread house was not as fun this year.

Decorating the gingerbread house has always been one of Ella’s most favorite of Christmas traditions, however, this year the occasion wasn’t quite as fun as it has been in previous years. In past years lure of the gingerbread house was always the candy. It was an *eat as you go* type of event.
This year Ella wanted the house to be PERFECT. That meant the icing went on, then off, then back on again leaving, not only a sticky mess, but a frustrated Ella and a completely exasperated me. Luke lost interest and went to play with his Lego. Ella, nevertheless, persisted and finished, but it was a painful process. 19 December 2009
