It took five stinking hours of holiday joy, a little profanity and a whole lot of patience - but we finished the gingerbread house

Sad part: it was a kit . . .

5 hours...that's it? Seriously, we took a leisurely 2 days and, if I had a damn camera, I could show you ours didn't even look that good. Then the dog ate it.

That is why I don't participate in Christmas decorations. I'm sure it will be different when Nytro and I have kids. Until then, triathlon training galore baby!

Very cute photo, anyway! And you two look like those mother and daughter commercials they used to have for Breck or Dove or whatever that was! :-)

Cute cute cute. Both of you. So send pieces of that wonderful gingerbread house around for our holiday snacks.
Ginger ... have you ever bathed or showered with ginger soap? Had some in the Hyatt last week at it was actually quite nice.

What's a gingerread house without a bit of cussin'? My husband is making an entire village of houses this weekend (apparently he thinks icing has zero points). Lovely photo!

That child must have the patience of a saint to put up with a cussin' Mom who takes 5 hours to put together a gingerbread kit ;) Good job! It looks lovely, but not as lovely as the two of you!

I was going to buy a g-kit at the store today. Maybe my family can start the construction today and will be done by Christmas 2006

I swear you two are twins, not mother-daughter!

Awesome project! My son and I spent alot of last weekend decorating the house (lights, deer, trees, etc...)! Good times!

Thanks for the reassuring comment about your daughter's speech delay! I guess she made up for lost time, eh? Good to hear!!

Cute picture. I agree, you look like twins.

I wonder if the length of time had anything to do with the fact that it is very hard to stick things together while doing cartwheels? Or drinking copious amounts of wine?

I can so totally relate to the gingerbread house fiasco.

Last year my wife swore she'd never do another, but somehow there we were again, holding up the roof, as the sides of the house fell. *Just* like last year.
