Every year the Hispanic community at our church does this as a fundraiser.
And every year the same gingerbread loving lady bakes and assembles gingerbread houses, all the candy you could possible need to decorate them AND makes all the icing as well.
We purchased a small house again this year and picked out the six bags of candy we would use to decorate our tiny home.
The kids each decorated gingerbread people (a gingerbread man for Peter and a gingerbread angel for Sarah) while Dan got started on the house.
My sweet husband spent lots of time deciding what to put where while I drank cinnamon coffee and watched.
After the kids decorated their people they decided they wanted to help with the house.
It took a little convincing but my husband finally decided to give in and let the kids "help".
I think when the kids get a little older, we will let them each decorate their own house and Dan will have one of his very own to decorate.
Three sides of our little masterpiece!
So which looks better, this year's house or last year's house? My husband wants to know.
