Gingerbread Houses

We love doing gingerbread houses around here. I love the candy and frosting the most. The only thing is those darn store bought ones are not very good and you have to put them together in a specific way. This year we decided to do graham cracker houses instead. Now everybody gets their own to build.

Getting Ready...

 L and Daddy got to work together.

Daddy didn't mind doing the hard part of shaping the roof.

This is serious work in our house.

Some ends up on the face instead of the house, but that's ok if its the good stuff.

Here are our 3 houses, Mommy's, C's and L and Daddy's. What is your vote?

Of course we have to display them till Christmas. L already snuck and ate some of her's a couple days after they were displayed, so now many the little gum drop lights at the bottom are missing.


  1. Those houses all look great! The fourth graders at my school made Gingerbread Houses yesterday. They loved it!

  2. Those are adorable. I've always stayed away from gingerbread houses because the store ones taste terrible and making it all seems like too much work. But graham crackers! That I can do!
