Tyler Woman Builds Gingerbread House Masterpiece

It's one hundred percent edible.  From the walls to the chimney to even the windows, one East Texas Gingerbread House sure looks good.  Jennifer Goates-Neal of Tyler spent four days building a Gingerbread House, a tradition she started a few years ago with her daughter.  She said she modeled the house after her childhood home.

"It's my favorite things from when I was a little girl, and my little girl's favorite treats, um Honey Combs, Gum Drops, Girl Scout Cookies, Red Hots, Pepper Mints, Twizzlers, so all the little things that I've enjoyed and thought would make it unique," said Goetes-Neal.  Jennifer says the house has become so popular that her friends have asked to borrow it for their Christmas parties, and she's already started planning for next year.
