Congratulations to septembermom on the winning post!
The making of the gingerbread house was a true event each Christmas. Knowing that she wasn't a Martha Stewart type, this young mother still decided to dare and enter the world of gingerbread architecture design. Ten hours later, she crossed her icing smudged arms as she admired her gingerbread house. She was glad that it stood up for thirty minutes at least! Her kids would time the gingerbread house's standing time each year. Those kids were proud to think that there mom would never give up. She wanted her kids to feel that they always had a gingerbread house at Christmas, even if it wasn't ready of Better Homes & Gardens' front cover. It was good enough for them.
