Our family had never made a Ginger Bread House from scratch. We have done houses before, but always from prepackaged kits easily purchased at the local grocery store. However, this year with the Ginger Bread House night at Rift Valley Academy approaching we realized our approach had to change. We could choose to just attend and see what everyone else created. That would be fun, because there are so many creative people at the school. But it is so much more fun to participate! So Allison and the girls with the help of the internet taught themselves how to make ginger bread house walls and roofs. Then the boys joined in to help with the decoration. We proudly carried our house up the hill to the display and joined other adventurous house makers in displaying our work. What do you think of our first attempt from scratch!
