Gingerbread House

The first week of my internal medicine rotation, we had to do this (horrible) 2-day course on how to run a code in the hospital (i.e., when someone goes into cardiac arrest). During that course, my friend Sarah and I decided to make a gingerbread house after work on Friday. That day we were at the hospital MUCH longer than we should have been but we returned to my apartment and put our frustrations to work on the little gingerbread house. I think it turned out well. Sarah was the expert window creator, I did the roof, and we even had a stack of firewood ready and waiting. Such fun...something makes me think that only pediatricians (of those in medical school) could have such a good time doing this with no kids around!!!

Very nice!!! My four year old decorated a gingerbread house also. While not quite as tidy as yours, hers was beautiful!

Enjoy your break!

Crystal - Isn't break wonderful!!? Congrats on finishing surgery...did you like it?

Peabody - Thanks...nothing elaborate, but still fun.

Gail - I never did these when I was little but like getting a kit each year now. I think the graham cracker kind is wonderful.
