It is that time of year again, where this household makes a serious effort in building a gingerbread house. Some families build gingerbread houses to have some fun time together. Some families build gingerbread houses to show off their artisitc abilities. Some families build gingerbread house because it is the thing to do during Christmas time. Not this family. This family builds gingerbread houses for the sole purpose of disposing of them on January 1st.
We begin with ingredients to make a perfect gingerbread house.
- Gingerbread kit
- Artistic kids
- Artificial sugars, colors, candies
- Other stuff
The husband is the builder of the aboved mentioned house. The reason most of these types of homes fall apart after construction is, because they do not meet building code. No respectable gingerbread woman would live in a home built with these walls!
The husband must make things right. A REAL man knows what to do.
During the time the husband was fixing the gingerbread walls, my youngest daughter walks into the garage and says, “Hey, it smells like gingerbread in here.”
Now the walls will meet code and we don’t have to deal with the wrath of the angry Mr. Gingerbread Man or worse, his wife. Look at those walls. Just perfect! Just like my husband. ♥
The husband started putting the house together using the most up-to-date code tools; chisel, wood glue, caulk, cardboard, and brains.
In the middle of constructions, Mrs. Gingerbread Woman decided she didn’t want just a a square house like all the other gingerbread ladies. She wanted to look different. You know, like she was from high candy society or something. Really, like her gumdrops are better than others.
So, my wonderful hard working husband designs her the perfect house. Isn’t it lovely? Any Gingerbread lady would want to live here.
All that is left to do is have the artistic designer girls, decorate the house. Now Mrs. Gingerbread Woman is happy. And so is Mr. Gingerbread Man, because his fairy tale marriage is still intacted.
