Merry Christmas to All!

Christmas has some great food. Right now my mom has ham, au graten potatoes (hand made of course),  and our Grandma Lampitts rolls (made with mashed potatoes) in the oven. We’re also stocked full of cookies, and my own attempt at awesome, a gingerbread house from scratch! I used the gingerbread cookie recipe I had before, and my brother helped design and cut out the pieces. I used a simple royal icing to glue the house together (doubled the recipe). I got 3 of the four walls up without any trouble, but when i was trying to add the front side, it cracked in two pieces, so i had to glue that together before i put it on the front of the house. The roof was the real problem. It just would NOT stay on. Last night I glued it on, and this morning it was already slipping. I think I know how to fix it for the next time. The house still tastes pretty awesome, its just not the most amazing looking!
