We made gingerbread houses again this year, though technically, I guess you'd call them sesame cracker houses. Our gingerbread houses collapsed the day we made them last year because they couldn't take the humidity. But I spent a good long time finding sturdy crackers, so this year's are holding up much better. My kids are so into their g
ingerbread houses that starting around Halloween they start hoarding pretty candy that looks gingerbread-house worthy.
[On a side note, the neighbor's house alarm has been going off for four straight hours this afternoon with little tiny breaks where it went off before getting triggered again. It is currently quiet, and I am choosing to hope that the neighbors are back and that this is not another pause in the insanity. Oh dear. It started up again before I even finished getting that written.]
