Worth It! (Things to try, read, watch, hear, and discuss)

That’s right: National Gingerbread House Day is a real thing, and how awesome is that? Making a gingerbread house was one of my new experience goals, but I have to admit I’ve had some difficulty pulling it off. My plan was to take a class with my sister Amy and one of my nieces, but you wouldn’t believe how quickly those classes fill up. We did find a place about forty minutes away that allows you to just walk in and build, but we’ve had scheduling conflicts and haven’t been able to make it out there yet.

Our next idea was to get a kit and try it without the assistance of professional help. When I totally forgot to order one, I ran to the store the morning they were supposed to come over, and managed to find a cookie house kit, which I decided was close enough. Then Amy had to cancel, which was a problem because my niece had her heart set on “making a house today“. So we decided that they would decorate their own house that evening, and the three of us would plan a different activity for later.

Of course, that left me with a cookie house kit and no one to build it with, so I called my friend Mike and we combined our total lack of artistic skills in the hope that two negatives would equal a positive. I’ll tell you that story on Sunday.
