aka Gingerbread House for Moms Trapped Under Sleeping Newborns
The Bibliophile is allergic to wheat and egg and milk (and more), and while I could have baked gingerbread that suited his allergies, or specialty ordered an allergy-friendly gingerbread kit ahead of time, this was more our speed this week:
(Sorry, no shot of it decorated! See title of this post).
It is made with (gluten free) crackers, and a frosting glue of confectioner's sugar and water. It will not be winning any architectural awards (I ran out of crackers and had to improvise), but much to my delight, it stayed together throughout the decorating process. He decorated it with frosting, fruit snacks, Enjoy life brand dairy-free chocolate chips, and smarties.
While we are on the subject, we received our Shutterfly holiday cards (for free, through their blogger program; thank you, Shutterfly!), and they are gorgeous. Inside is a birth announcement, and this is the cover. Consider this your card, since I don't have all of your addresses.
The process couldn't have been easier, and they earned at least one new customer -- I've since ordered a few photo mugs as Christmas gifts. One year, I am definitely going to do calendars.
Comment: Feel free to link up to your gingerbread houses (put us to shame!), or to book recommendations with gingerbread men. Here is our gingerbread house post from last year.
