Gingerbread Success

One of the activities for the advent calendar was to put together gingerbread houses. I purchased the village set of four from Michael's.

The making of the gingerbread houses is typically a difficult task. The icing they provide to hold the walls together isn't always trusty and we have had several gingerbread houses collapse on us. 

So, this year Shelly and I decided to use hot glue to put those walls together (knowing that these were for decoration and would not be eaten). And, gingerbread decorating was instantly a more sliding walls and dripping candy.

Our masterpieces were complete and I added them to our retro Christmas scene on the kitchen table. The red VW bug was mine as a little girl (circa 1974). Loved adding a little tree to the top and then surrounding the VW with the gingerbread village.
