The Girl's first Gingerbread House

Yesterday, while the Boy and I were out doing boring errands for him, the Girl decided to make the gingerbread house from the el-cheapo kit I had purchased at Trader Joes. I originally got it because she's begged for years to make one, and I just finally gave in and put it in the cart. But I also kinda wanted to do it with her, as I've never made one either. I figured it would be a fun activity we could do together.

Well, she evidentally thought otherwise, because it was sitting on the counter all built by the time we came home. I think it came out very well, considering that she made the icing herself and piped it using our piping bag that she had never even attempted to use before. OK, no fancy piping, but the whole thing stuck together really well, and we're now using it as a table centerpiece until she decides it must be eaten.

Cute, isn't it?

So, we're eating dinner later, and the centerpiece is adorable and the Girl decides she wants to eat it. So a discussion ensues, and the Boy says "What's the Brown Walls made of?" We laughed and said "Gingerbread, duh" and he said "Oh, I thought it was graham cracker." Another gifted or blond moment at our abode.
