The gingerbread house

Our first gingerbread house ~ compliments of Marcia and Candy Davis (friends from Dayton, OH). We received this as a Christmas gift in 2005, but I decided to save it for this year. I think it is cute for a bunch of first-timers, and we will be able to enjoy it for the entire season.
Now, we did have a bit of an issue because I did not think it should be consumed. Consequently I was faced with all kinds of questions & comments. "Mommy, can I have this little piece of icing?" "If we are not supposed to eat it, why are nutrition facts listed on the box?" (You mean lack of nutrition?!) "Mommy, this candy is not too hard. Can I eat it anyway?" "Mommy, I really think we are supposed to eat it. Can we?" And so on, and so on, and so on. . .
Personally, I see no reason to put hours of labor into something that will be instantly devoured! I thought we could enjoy it for weeks to come, and I finally pacified the men in this home by promising a batch of gingerbread cookies that will be eaten. Whew! I squeaked out of that one!
