I cheated....

I bought a pre-made Gingerbread House kit. Yup, me. I know, I'm a slacker.

The boys took turns kneading the pre-made royal icing:

While they were working their phalanges, I got the pieces out, organised & ready for putting together:

Mmmmmm...... Smell the gingerbread. Mmmmmm.....

Each of them decorating their "piece" (kit came with a tree, snowman & gingerbread boy):

In progress:

We we supposed to wait 15 minutes before doing the candies above ^^. I was impatient, though. Then it started getting too heavy & pieces started sliding, so I figured it was a good time to wait that 15 minutes.

We ate (it's crockpot Sunday!):

We had brotherly love:

We made crazy faces:

Then the dog started looking at us as though we'd lost our darn fool minds. Oh wait.....

Then it was back to work to build our house:

My proud little workmen.

How gorgeous !
In my day (listen to me, I sound like an old woman, here) we didn't have kits ! *sob* I never had a single gingerbread house turn out in almost 15 years. Not one. We used to pretend that the big bad wolf blew them down and that's why they looked like kindling. :o(
My children must hate me now.
