Gingerbread houses- do you have one in your house?

Doing the post for them has got me to wondering how many people actually take time to make one.

If you have one, do you make it from scratch or do you use a kit?

If you don't, do you just not like them, don't want to do one or is it more of a time thing?

I have made one from scratch, but we just do the kits now.  The kids love them.  They can be time consuming, but the kits really make it pretty easy.  I like to buy more candy for embellishments than what comes with the kits.  :)

I've missed you and everyone else too!  I think about you guys a lot.  I'm hoping things slow down a bit and I can visit more often.  :)   I will share pics if I have any.  We haven't made them this year yet.  I'll look for lasy years and post it.
