Merry Christmas everyone! I really hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas holiday full of good food and good times. My Christmas is a bit lame because all my family lives up north and I'm stuck down south. I try to keep myself very occupied every Christmas season so I don't dwell on that too much.
I try to make a gingerbread house every year. Last year I couldn't because I was in the middle of a move. I am so happy not to be in the same place I was last year. Moving sucks! We may be moving again but that isn't set in stone yet so we'll see.
This year's gingerbread house is a bit of a cheater house. I used the gingerbread from a Halloween gingerbread haunted house kit I bought when all the Halloween stuff was red tagged. I got this super cheap! I just bought some Christmas themed candy and made my own royal icing. I really love the pink and brown.
My husband keeps asking when we get to destroy the house. Our tradition is to blow up our gingerbread houses at the end of the holiday season. Mostly because it's so easy to buy fireworks this time of year to celebrate the New Year and what's the point of keeping a house made of cookie and candies? Sounds like an ant/bug attractor to me! I'm not a pyro so I let Peter handle the detonation.
Is this a weird tradition?
