Do not be fooled into thinking these are gingerbread houses. They are pure compressed sugar with not a scrap of gingerbready goodness anywhere. I guess that is all I should expect when I buy ready to make kits from the bargain store for $2 each. Lottie was intent on giving hers a technicolour roof and mister monster was a bit freaked out by the texture of the whole thing, but it was still good fun and motivation for me to try making them from scratch next year.
I have finally started working on Lotties Christmas dress and hopefully I will emerge from all the ruffle making with my sanity intact.
Oh and did I mention there is less than 48 hours to go until the big day and I still have presents to buy, everything to wrap, food shopping to tackle and then the baking! I guess that means I should get to it instead of sitting here on the computer contemplating how I can make a dent in the 1169 bloglines posts I need to catch up on.
