Amazing gingerbread houses
A few weeks back the girls made gingerbread houses with Cason's brother and his girlfriend while we worked on our Master Bathroom with my Dad. The girls LOVED getting in on all the decorating action and I think they spent over 3 hours actually constructing their houses. ha!
No judging on the photography... it was dark.
Oh, and don't mind that awesome hair-do either.
They are SO proud of their "gingerbread cottages" that they made me clear a space by the font door, on our entryway table to display them. Every once in a while we get in a fight because Aubrielle will sneak candy from the roof tops, but other then that, the houses have stayed pretty much intact!
All of this hard work got me thinking about gingerbread houses in general and all of the ones I've seen lately on pinterest and on blogs. These little babies aren't as easy as they look. They take TONS of time, patience... and candy! Check out some of my favorites...
Ya, I pretty much want to live in these two houses. Especially that blue one with the stone. Can you say AWESOME and super pretty!?
Never thought I would say that about a gingerbread house...
Have you made gingerbread houses this year? Do you take lots of time making them detailed and perfect, or do you give up after the first hour and just start
eating throwing candy wherever?
I'm thinking next year I want to have a Gingerbread-Crafters event, where all the crafty ladies I know get together for a night of gingerbread house crafting! Wouldn't that be awesome!?
(do I sound like a crazy person, because I want to decorate candy houses with adults instead of children???)
Well... at least I'm not THIS crazy...
Yikes! Wonder what the graphic car-wrap company thought of THIS design...
And where do you think one might find peppermint and spearmint hubcaps?
Oh... probably Walmart...duh.
Happy Gingerbread Wednesday!
