12/7/14 Gingerbread Houses

As part of their ongoing Christmas rituals, the humans Mom and Jamie decided to break out the gingerbread and build some houses.

Mom made her own batch of “royal icing”, since she says the pre-packaged stuff never holds the houses together. Armed with this delicious-smelling “glue”, she and Jamie proceeded to turn the kitchen into a ginger wonderland:


I have to admit, I eyeballed the candy and licked some elbows to get frosting. Jamie worked on the 5 village houses, and Mom made the big manor house.






Woof! Love, Maggie

      Mom had cats when she was in the Navy, because they are more self-sufficient than dogs. Hmpf. Anyway, she used to decorate the tree with strategically-placed bells. If there was a kitty up the tree – she’d know. 🙂
