Love Shack

Howard’s sister Sheryl sent us a gingerbread lobster shack for the holidays. Between one thing and another, we never got around to putting it together.

Today, I picked up Valentine’s Day candy, and Howard and I made a love shack instead of a Christmas-themed building. We had a lot of fun with the decorations: Conversation Hearts, Twizzlers, Hot Tamales, dark chocolate Hershey’s kisses, and lots and lots of royal icing for glue.

Neither of us ever had put together a gingerbread house before. Our construction skills are far from perfect. Good thing it was gingerbread and not bricks and mortar.

Our love shack is proudly displayed on the dining room table in anticipation of Valentine’s Day next weekend.
