Thankyou for the Gingerbread House.

A big THANKYOU to L, D, L and J for the gingerbread house.  And the chutney and jam.  I really appreciate you doing that for me.

Here it is in all its glory.  It looks like a lot of work has gone into putting it together.

And here is what happens if you unwrap your Gingerbread house when a certain daughter is around.  I *caught* her trying to coax a chocolate to come out.  She found out that the window was too small though and begged, yes begged! to be allowed to break it "just a tiny bit"
The house survived last night and is still intact but there are a few Smarties missing from the outside...
I love Gingerbread so this will be a lovely treat.  Daughter knows about it and Hubby is home too so I will have to share...But if I wait until Daughter goes away for a few days and I get into it while Hubby is outside...


  1. Scheme, Barb. Scheme about how to make sure loved ones don't get much, if woman after my own heart.

    That's a great gift to receive!

    Hey, if there were chocolate inside, I would break in and then try to patch the break. I am a shameless thief when it comes to holiday chocolate. Ask my children!

  2. Grandaughter was her today. There are no smarties left but the house itself is still intact. As are the chocolates inside it.


  3. The chocolates are all that count! You can outlast them all and eat the chocolates alone. OR, you can break it open and rescue the chocolates and swear there were not many. My children would suspect subterfuge in the case of me and chocolate.
