Sweet Gingerbread Houses

My mom was SO sweet to make 
gingerbread houses for my kids to decorate...  

Thank you mom!!! 

 Here they are being assembled...

Here are the finished houses.
Zachary's is on the scale ~ Olivia's is on the plate.

You might be wondering... where are pictures of the kids?

Well... they were supposed to decorate these...  
but they ended up sticking around for about 5 minutes!
They started out SO excited to make these too...

Oh well!

Mom and I ended up sitting in the kitchen 
having fun anyway!!

This morning the kids woke up smiling and 
asking to see their gingerbread houses...
So, I guess everything worked out!!

By the way...
There aren't any nibbles from the 
gingerbread houses or licks off the candies... yet!

Hope you're having a

  5. oh my heavens!!!! these are the cutest Gingerbread houses ever!!!!! I love them.....they are so did your Mom make!!!! I see talent runs through the whole family!!!!

  6. Well... Mom used an old Pampered Chef mold for the gingerbread houses, so that's where the detail comes from :) It was still a labor-intensive process though, especially for the kids to be done messing with them in 5 minutes... but we actually had a lot of fun decorating them ourselves :)
