Gingerbread Reunion

During my junior year at York College of Pennsylvania, my friends and I decided after we got back from semester break to build a gingerbread house. We were unable to see each other over the Christmas holiday, so we figured it would be a fun thing we could do together to celebrate. We listened and sang along to Disney songs as we worked, and I tried to not eat all of the tiny, multi-colored candy balls while decorating the roof, the gummy pathway, and the windows on the back and sides of the house; my friend made the icicles on the front and back. After we finished decorating, we played with this weird, fake snow in a jar that takes about a month or two to dissolve. It looked like real snow, but it felt kind of rubbery when you touched it.
