Toby and Clara decorate the gingerbread house

December 25, 2009

One of my favorite Christmas memories is the gingerbread house my mother would always make for us.  When we were old enough, she’d let us help decorate, and then it would sit on display until long after the holiday.  By that time it was too stale to eat, but the gumdrop decorations would always disappear soon after the house was made!

This Christmas Eve the twins of my sister-in-law Peggy and her partner Lisa came over, and my daughter Stephanie continued this tradition with them.  She baked and assembled — and boy, did they decorate!
