As we were decorating these gingerbread houses I was amazed what a difference a year makes. She did so good!
It probably helped that after completing her own house, she co-decorated mostly with my mom who is not quite so territorial about her gingerbread.
After all the work on the Chex roof my mom allowed Biscuit to add the dog house (on the left) complete with flat licorice dog with pretzel legs (below, if you couldn't tell).
Meanwhile, I was constructing my usual Necco roof "masterpiece."(check out that candy chimney!)
Except, notice how the sides are held up with cans?
I swapped the cans for candy sticks but do you see in the upper left corner above how the super cool candy chimney is ominously leaning?
Yep, full roof collapse. Bummer.
But enough about me.
