Our Gingerbread House

Home Sweet Home

Hannah saw the gingerbread house contest at Winterfest and decided we needed to make our own. For our first attempt (having never made a gingerbread house before) I decided to go with the store-bought pre-baked house. Everyone helped. Takeshi was our architect and laid out the plans for our house to be built. I constructed the house and frosted the roof. Hannah decorated the roof and the sides of the house. Ernest added the finishing touches with gumdrop rings on our rooftop.

Hannah made these doors and windows all by herself.

She also placed these gumdrops on the side of the house by herself.
I think it's a pretty good 1st attempt. We might even do it again next year :)

It looks great! I found an already constructed gingerbread house at Fresh & Easy this year and Costco last year. Even easier for your celebration next year!
