Gingerbread "houfe"

This year our little Lottie bug was much more involoved in the gingerbread house building night! Last year the kits that we bought were full of broken pieces that were difficult and time consuming to frost-glue together before we could build them, and since the candy we were using was already a year old (I bought too much last year) I did not want to be bothered with whipping up royal icing from scratch again this time around. So, we took the shortcut and hot glued everything together! It worked fast and perfect! You can see that Charlotte was very pleased with her HOUFE!
Do you have this tradition?? If you want to pick up a cheap kit we found ours at IKEA.

We have yet to do this. Christmas is coming so soon. What a bella casa! BTW, we are still waiting for that picture!
