Good enough to eat

We decorated out first ever gingerbread house tonight.  I took the advice of a girlfriend of mine and put the house together a couple days ago, so all the kids had to do tonight was put on a pound of candy.  We had so much fun, I think we'll make it a yearly project.  But with four designers, there were a few disagreements, so maybe next year we'll go for separate cabins instead of one big house!

Here's Daddy, piping the roof with fresh icing.

They couldn't wait to get started.

So intrigued.

Mama got in on the decorating action, too.

Lauren was being so meticulous about this front window.

We even added a gingerbread family.

What an awesome idea! Did you make the gingerbread yourself or can you buy it? At presentation, we did this every year (yeah, some crazy mom actually built 40 little gingerbread houses...) but they were made of graham crackers instead of gingerbread.

What a great family tradition to start. Looks like fun! Elaine

I bought this kit at either Costco or Sam's Club. I'm not that fond of gingerbread, so I love the graham cracker idea. I seem to remember doing something like that at school, too.
