2013 Ginger Bread House by Lib Granzeau

Image


This year Lib chose to limit her show houses and concentrate on making houses with and for kids. It is much more rewarding and takes a fraction of the time. Every weekend, we have had 3 to 7 kids ranging from 5 years old to 75 in our kitchen tossing powdered sugar in the air and slurping up royal icing. It has been a ball and we have made memories for lots of great kids.

Wow, that's limiting her show houses? With a house like that, who needs more ...

The tree is fantastic.
This year the houses didn't get assembled early enough and were sliding apart as the kids built them. They still had fun,but I was not happy.
