12 dates of christmas: housebuilding

gingerbread house building, funnily enough, is the only christmas tradition we've had in place since last year. (look!)  for our fifth date of christmas, we simultaneously had a blast and completely slacked in the g-bread house department.  last year we bought a prefab home kit with the notion that we'd start there, at the very bottom, and get more serious each year until we were baking our own gingerbread from scratch and drawing up blueprints for sprawling villages full of multistory mansions.  erp.  we bought another kit this year... but we chose our own candy, so c'mon!  once again this go-round i found myself getting a little persnickety about the roof tiling, and asking mark to "do the rest" because he's an artist!  i stand by last year's sentiments, and absolutely love this date.  and i'm telling you guys, next year's house is gonna knock your socks off...
