Guess what Crissy did yesterday as a way to procrastinate about wrapping Christmas presents?
She and Girlfriend made a “gingerbread house!”
Crissy thought she’d try her hand at it because really she hates wrapping presents as it is not one of her many, many, wonderful talents and it always comes out looking like she wrapped the present with her feet.
And as it turns out the “gingerbread house” came out sort of the same way.
We started out by making coco crispy treats which Crissy’s bff Rachel suggested we try and even though Crissy let them go stale for four days they were still too gooey and they just wouldn’t form walls.
Well, they sort of did but it looked more like a post- nuclear Charlie Bucket’s house
than the thing of wondrous splendor that we made last year
Maybe that’s not the same one we made last year but it looks exactly like that.
Or nothing like it whatsoever.
You’ll never know.
Anyways, Girlfriend and I decided it would be easier to cut the crispies into bricks and just stack them up and that is what we did and here is our creation:
Girlfriend thought the reindeer pooper was a nice touch so we included it.
Great news! The reindeer will also shit M&Ms! But they get stuck coming out of his large gaping butt hole, so be careful.
That’s the back and Crissy is just realizing we forgot to put windows. It may be because she is still all fired up about the windows on her real house. She’s trying to block out the unpleasantness lest she go all nutsy and take a sledge hammer to her house.
Crissy doesn’t think she did too bad of a job and only broke down in tears 2 or 6 times and threatened to throw the whole fucking thing into the trash can but Girlfriend was quite the little cheerleader and stood on her step stool and cheered “Go mama! Go mama! It’s your birthday! Don’t give up!” and so how could Crissy not try and try again?
And so that is what Crissy did yesterday instead of getting ready for Christmas and now she is hysterical because she’s behind on everything and there’s a massive snow storm coming today and she has like 15 minutes to do eleventy million errands.
