...and an hour later we've got this!

Yea! The gingerbread house is finished! I have no patience for doing it any better today. I decided before we even began that Jerry was going to be allowed to do it his way. This just means I have to put aside my perfectionist tendencies, and live with the fact that it wasn't going to be done exactly how I wanted to do it. But see? It looks pretty good anyway. And he thinks it's the "best gingerbread house ever," and who am I to disagree?

Also, I did all this with one batch of frosting, and I don't feel like making another batch. So that's really the main reason we're finished. If I feel like it later, perhaps I'll whip up another batch of frosting and do some landscaping. I doubt it, especially since there are massive amounts of cut-outs to bake and frost.
