each year since we were dating, eric and i have made a gingerbread house. we usually cheat and buy a kit that we just have to put together...but we still have fun. this year we got our kit and it just sat on the counter for a few weeks. last night i decided that we should get it put together and decorated. so, i began. shortly after i got the walls together and the roof on, i lost my inspiration. eric didn't feel like decorating either. so it sat. i felt bad for wasting the money, so this morning i decided to get it decorated. (just eating the candy wasn't really an option because it was pretty gross...i tried). here's the finished product. not too bad, i think. at least we didn't just waste the $9!
