Nothing Says “Christmas” like a Gingerbread House


It’s one of the critical memories of my childhood. No year went by without gingerbread–it was the single indispensable Christmas cookie. And not very many went by without some sort of gingerbread construction.

Well, last Saturday, our daily Advent activity was…making a gingerbread house with Grandma! Sorry you can’t smell it (or taste it. But the internet has its limits, you know.) Enjoy! 🙂

    • When I asked Mom to come make a gingerbread house with us, I was envisioning four walls and a roof, and perhaps a small box chimney. When she walked in with this pattern, my jaw hit the floor. We started at 10:30 a.m. and put the finishing touches on at 5:15p.m.

    • We don’t use the recipe they give, b/c it’s really not meant to be eaten. That means we have to get creative in construction sometimes. 🙂 For instance: heavy cardboard backing to hold up the big pieces, which would like to collapse and crumble. 🙂
