We made our gingerbread house last night…I love decorating them but now I have better ideas after seeing this post…I Love your blog! Merry Christmas
ohhhhh sooo much fun!!! we love gingerbread houses 🙂
I have always wanted to do a gingerbread house but haven't yet because I can't handle it with kids…I'm moving to Utah in a couple weeks so maybe we should be friends! Crafting-cousins.blogspot.com
Your gingerbread houses look great and I love the inspiration ones too. Especially those two story ones. We made one with our special needs students at work this week. Weird car though 🙂
ok, first, that very fist picture – aahhhh! LOVE HER HAIR!!!! She is just too cute!!
second, i cannot make gingerbread houses. it is sad. 🙁 i wish, but, alas, i lack that department of crafty. one of these days perhaps…
love the walmart comment – probably true!
Did you see this one? ksl.com/emedia/slc/2495/249518/24951822.jpg AMAZING!! Not quite as good as your girls but close!!
Gingerbread houses are hard to make—we thought it would be a really fun family actvity last year…WRONG we needed to wait until our kids were a few years older. We will try again next year.
Your girls houses look darling and that car is awesome!
oh my goodness. That gingerbread car seriously just got me laughing SO hard!! You know it is an old man or lady with a lead foot in that thing! LOL
Beautiful! Your girls did a fantastic job on their gingerbread houses. I adore your blog, I'm a silent follower and will be looking forward to the New Years photos.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Shelly can I be invited to that party? I am a little obsessed w/ making gingerbread houses. Last year we had a competition w/ some friends and it was seriously a lot of fun. Also growing up, my family and another family got together every year to make gingerbread houses. Good times! This is a really long comment about gingerbread!
thank you…i am new to your posts and just smile everytime i see something and then frown because I wish I could do just like you…I am craft challenged. thank you for your efforts to put together such a great site.
LOL on the car! What a fab collection of houses you found on pinterest. Arg…. now I want to create my OWN. Never never challenge me… 🙂
So cute. I've seen a lot of kid gingerbread house decorating and your girls really did a great job. We have a cast iron gingerbread mold we use every year for our two story gingerbread house and I love it.
My favorite gingerbread house was made by a student and his mom. It was a gingerbread California Mission, for fourth grade history. Awesome! I will post it on pintrest. Link: pinterest.com/pin/170081323397085167/
Love all the gingerbread houses. We started this tradition when my husband and I taught a College and Young Adult Bible study. I provided the gingerbread (and graham crackers) and royal icing. The "kids" brought all the embellishments. Imagine a 10 foot long counter covered with candies, cereal, cookies, etc…not an INCH of space left. Publix donated the cake boards. What fun! It became an annual event. Now that these "kids" are grown, married (most) and parents, they are STILL getting together for this event. Hmmmm….maybe I should blog about this.

Wow! the girls did an awesome job! I love that they wanted them by the front door to display! So great… I didn't make a gingerbread house this year (I'd prob eat all the candy!) But, I did make a Putz Glitter House! I'd love you to see my creation. vickidesigner.com
They did a great job – so cute!
I made the "Up" house out of gingerbread and marshmallow fondant 2 years ago. It took 1,400 jelly beans to make the 'balloons'. We donated it to the Festival of Trees and it sold for a shocking amount of money. I haven't made one since because I'm pretty confident I could never do one that cool again and now I sorta feel like I'm supposed to! LOL!
Random question…(BTW your kids are adorable!!) – I see Cason paining in the garage…do you have a little booth set up or just go for it?? How do you keep paint from getting on everything?? I just got a paint sprayer for Christmas (YEAH) but I am a little scared to use it *wink*
Oh shoot…my email is pasquelt at msn dot com…THANKS!!
I'm flattered that you included my Valentine Gingerbread House. Thank you! Here's the link to my original post:
Have a sweet day!
