My kids and I do one every year, but I buy the pre made ones and do our own decorating. I have tried to make them by scratch, but this always never works LOL! So we buy the kit, then we buy what kinds of things we want to decorate with and go from there. Any one else do a ginger bread house? when we are done I will post a pic of ours, we do not start it until the endo of the month but we love making them and eating them !!
