The 2009 Gingerbread House!

Every year our church hosts a gingerbread house workshop and this was our third year attending.  It has become a sweet little tradition for our family and I hope we continue participating for years to come.

Dan takes the role of lead designer and decorator and the kids offer lots of advice.  However; this year, once the kids stopped eating all of the decor, they decided they should take a bigger role in determining placement of the candies and actual gluing of the candies.

Lots of frosting and candy later we had a really cute house. 

I thought I loaded the pictures of the side views of the house but apparently failed to do that before our trip...so just imagine lots of cross mosaics made out of chicklets.  (Think stained glass windows gingerbread house style!)   Stunning, I tell you!  Stunning!

Your gingerbread house is darling! They did such a nice job. I volunteered at my son's school this year for gingerbread house making day! It was so much fun!

Hope you have a wonderful New Year's! I haven't visited you in such a long time. I thought I'd hop over and see what you've been up to. :D

Darling! I keep meaning to make gingerbread houses, but then I never quite get it done. Maybe next year.
