Kaycee’s got a Christmas party at school on Thursday and instead of buying a couple of packets of biscuits for her contribution, she wants to take a gingerbread house in!
We don’t get much time in the evenings after school due to Kaycee going to Guides on a Monday, Ella going to cubs on a Wednesday, Granddad coming to dinner on a Thursday and the kids going off to Derbyshire for the weekend on a Friday so the only day we have free is a Tuesday.
Ella’s got her Christmas party tomorrow and thankfully she didn’t want to take a gingerbread house, she wanted to take stained glass cookies so I’ve spent all afternoon making gingerbread dough for Kaycee and sugar cookie dough for Ella then all evening helping them roll the dough, cut the shapes and bake them.
We managed to get the walls stuck together and when the girls went to bed, I got the roof pieces on. Kaycee’s going to decorate it while Ella is at Cubs tomorrow night.
We used icing made with icing sugar and egg whites instead of water, It makes a much better glue to stick the pieces together
I’ll update the post tomorrow with Kaycee’s finished masterpiece 🙂
Kaycee finished the gingerbread house and is very proud of it 🙂
