Yes, it's been quite some time since a new post, and it may be a while longer before anything of prolific quality appears here again...a very long time.
So, until the brain decides to re-engage, just enjoy this...
I have mixed feelings about traditions. Sometimes I think that traditions can get in the way of enjoying the holiday season because many times, it's impossible to follow them...for whatever reason i .e. weather, mixed-up schedules, illness, travel plans, etc. Other times, traditions provide warm fuzzies for me and are looked forward to with much excitement.
Such is the case with our GINGERBREAD HOUSE TRADITION. In the amount of time it took to construct these creations, we could have built a real house. But, there's no way to "measure the memories" that were 'built' here.
When time permits, the "step-by-step" photographic documentary will follow, but until then, this will have to do.
Oh, and no gingerbread house is complete without a marshmallow caterpillar...
Anyone care for a lick of mushed up marshmallow?
