And on the Sixth Day of Christmas . . .Posted: December 31, 2013
. . . I made a gingerbread house! Ok, so technically, I simply assisted as my human mommy made the gingerbread house.
But she definitely could not have done it without my support. I helped her open the little kit and I made sure that everything was there. This was her first ever gingerbread house. Can you believe she’s lived all these years and she’s never ever made a gingerbread house? Shocking, I know. She had the best intentions to make it before Christmas day, but you know how humans can be. They have all those silly human things to do before Christmas, and sometimes they just can’t get to everything. So anyway, she explained to me something about the Twelve Days of Christmas, and that the celebration actually continues past the 25th of December. As a Golden Retriever, I am all about continuing the celebration.
Back to the gingerbread house. I watched every single step. I sniffed every single step, too. I will tell you that the gingerbread smelled pretty good. A few of the little decoration sprinkles fell on the ground, and they were pretty yummy. I even got a tiny taste of the icing that held the house together, and it was pretty special.
I have to tell you that I was quite pleased with the final product. But then I started thinking. . . . Maybe next year we can make a gingerbread doghouse out of dog treats. I’m definitely ready to help with that project!
