Gingerbread Houses

Yesterday, Jonathan and I made gingerbread men for Christmas.

We had so much fun!!!

Of course, Jon ate most of the decorations and licked the icing from the beaters, but that's what little boys are supposed to do, right?

Why did I make them so early? Time gets away from me this time of year, so I usually start making cookies early and freezing them until the big day.

Speaking of gingerbread . . . Saturday night Canyon Creek Care Center, which is where our branch resides, had a gingerbread house auction. I took a ton of pictures and thought I'd share them with you. If you're planning to make a gingerbread house for the holidays, one of these might inspire you.

There were many more than these, but the flash on my camera was acting up.

This almost inspired me to make one, but after the gingerbread men, I'm good.

Which house was your favorite?

Do you make a gingerbread house, gingerbread men, or both for the holidays? 

I think I'll go sneak a gingerbread man out of the freezer. ;)



  1. We get together as a family and make gingerbread houses every year. I'm sorry to say that those houses put our houses to shame.

    1. I'm sure your houses look great. Besides, it's the memories you create with your family that's important. I could never get the knack of making the right consistency of icing so the house would stick together, so it's gingerbread men for me. :)
