Merry Christmas! Here are our gingerbread houses for this year! This is a fun tradition we do every year, see our previous years here: 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010. This was Matthew's first time participating. He was eating cereal off his house as fast as I could put it on! His house hit the floor and split into pieces.
Kevin's is on the left with "pokey trees". Mine is on the right with the pretzel fence.
Here is Caleb's on the left and Rebekah's on the right.
And lastly, Joshua's. Rebekah helped him at the end to actually put candy on his house. Mostly, he ate the candy off as soon as he put it on.
If you'd like to make your own gingerbread houses, this is the recipe I use: Simply Recipes. My advice is to bake the pieces longer than you should and leave them out all night so they are nice and hard! Also, make sure your frosting is thick. I'd love to see pictures of yours if you try it! Merry Christmas, may God bless you!
