For nearly the past decade, over her Christmas visit, Andrea has made a gingerbread house from scratch at Tisha’s in L.A.. This year I gave her a break, her second only Christmas in this house…and bought a kit. Here Forest and Jen are working in tandem to decorate it. When they waned, Drea and I stepped in. So in the end even a kit takes effort. Good effort, worth it, and fun for us, as this used to be our tradition when our kids still lived at home. The circle (haven’t gone there for awhile), but it’s always circulating.
