Yesterday my mom and I made a gingerbread house. Oh My Lanta, Georgia…. These things are harder to make than they look! It was our first time to EVER make one. We starting thinking back to the last time we had a gingerbread house; it was in 1978! 30 years ago my mom’s high school BFF sent us a gingerbread house for Christmas. I just informed my 29 year old brother that this is his first gingerbread house. He thanked me but I'm sure he really doesn't care. :)


Here's our gingerbread house.
This is a very hard project for 2 perfectionst.



We dyed our coconut pink and added it to the roof.
My favorite part!



Jenn and I were so proud of our gingerbread house in '78.

I love your gingerbread house, it is adorable. I was going to do one, but didn't had a chance. I get to enjoy yours instead.

I have a song dedicated to you on my blog. When I first heard it, it reminded me of you. Although we never met, you are a sweet friend. Because of what you do in helping orphans and sharing your genuine love with others. I hope you like like it.

Have a great day
