Home Depot Gingerbread House 2012



hd (79)

Jamie and I did some “black Friday” shopping. My favorite stop was Home Depot. It was mid-morning when we got there. The craziness was over, and I had a great time. All of the associates were so friendly and helpful. We specifically went there to pick up a Home Depot Gingerbread House.  Of course we picked up way more than just the gingerbread house. It was so much fun, that I told jamie “Disneyworld is NOT the happiest place on earth—Home Depot is”.  The kit was fun to put together. Jamie and I hadn’t made a gingerbread house in years!

We put it together very late Saturday night.  I’ve made a little video for your viewing pleasure . . .

Thank you Jamie, it was a lot of fun doing this “project” with you!  Love ya daughter!

  1. Oh my goodnes… this was cute! It put a big ol’ smile on my face. Y’all are too cute and your home depot GBHouse is too!
    My son in law put lights on their new house and my grand daugter calls it her gingerbread house!

    LoL! kids. BIG ones AND little ones! :) Patricia

  2. This is just so cute, I had no idea you could buy a kit like this at HD. My son works at their warehouse…maybe I should get him one:-) Looks like the two of you had a great time putting it together!
    I’m headed over to Michaels today and didn’t have a coupon….thanks Gail.

  3. Cute video! Looks like you guys were concentrating really hard on that house! I too didn’t know Home Depot had gingerbread houses. Home Depot over Disneyland? Not for me lol

  4. Very cute, guys! But don’t tell me someone didn’t do a little snacking :-)

  5. So cute! I had no idea that Home Depot sold gingerbread kits. We have been making log cabin style gingerbread houses since I was 5. It is my favorite holiday tradition! So FUN!
