Dollar Gingerbread House

I hope everyone is having a great winter break. I thought I’d pop in to talk about a little fun we had on the first of January. Though a gingerbread house is very Christmasy, they were a dollar at the store so I had to buy one. Who doesn’t like the sound of candy fun at a dollar?

I enlisted my boyfriend and younger sisters to help. My boyfriend was not too pleased but after we started was very into making sure it was perfect.

I find that on holiday break it’s nice to spend family time especially on a budget. A dollar gingerbread was just the thing we needed. I also was able to grab a gingerbread people set for a dollar.

Now for those who fight over which piece goes where and who’s fault it is that the house is slipping, this may not be the activity for you. I had the girls on gingerbread men duty and my man and I on the house. We had a lot of fun. There was no fighting, just fun.


I learned that my boyfriend is hilarious when you give him an artsy task. He’s a self proclaimed “can’t even color a straight line” kind of dude. Put a gingerbread house in front of him and suddenly he is an artist.
We had so much fun and it tasted very good may I add. It was the best way to spend my break even though I was sick.
