Building a Gingerbread House

So, a little bit of advice. Gingerbread Houses don't do so well in tropical climates! I guess there is a price to pay for living here afterall!

I bought a gingerbread house kit at the grocery store thinking that Austin would have fun building it. I was right about that. The kid BEGGED to do it even when I told him 'after dinner.'

He did a great job listening and following directions, but the humidity just didn't cooperate and before long, the roof was sliding down as the icing that held it on the walls melted. Oh least we didn't have to wait long to eat it!!!

And here's our finished "house."
