Gingerbread Houses


This past weekend, I had my annual Gingerbread House decorating party.

This is a tradition we started way back when I was a child. Mom would make graham cracker houses, and my entire class would come over to decorate.


This year, a few good friends came over for decorating fun. Everyone was given a basic house to decorate, expand, or renovate as they wished. We had both royal icing and melted chocolate for "glue".

I think we had some pretty good results:








The finished products!
We had a hot tub from Kris

And a doghouse (center right)

 Prince Charming won for most construction on his lot- with a picket fence, carport (with car!), and a shed.

 
 Leslie had the cutest snowman in a celery sled!


 Kristen got into the spirit with a red and green theme:

Here's mine:



The front of Kristen's and a little bit of Janet's




I think they look so great! I can't wait for next year!
