My 4 ear old daughter and I put at least 30 hours into this baby. It was her design, and she did a lot of the decorations, including the wreaths, and the snowman. She also placed every single mint on the roofline! The whole thing was made from scratch, and was my first tr at gingerbread. I am shocked that it stayed up to be honest. It was fun, but I am SO ready to put it outside for the birds. Rudolf was my fav! oh and the ice rink.
