A gingerbread house

This Christmas we all took part in creating our gingerbread house.

I made the gingerbread dough.

My husband cut the pieces, baked them and constructed our little house (his tip is using beer bottles to hold the walls while the icing sets).

Then the children set to work decorating and, of course, sampling! And as the years go by, we relinquish more and more of the decorating to them.

It’s lovely to sit back and watch them bring it all together.

And I adore looking back on the sweet little gingerbread houses we have made over the years, with their jolly little decorations *grin*

Our gingerbread house is dessert on Christmas day.

This year we shared it with my dad and his partner. We were all a little reluctant to break into the house… but once we did… *grin*

And I’m usually behind the camera, watching, taking photos…  But this time I’m even in some photos!

(I might even try to be in the photos a little more often… we will see!)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

Blessings, Kelly

    You are all so good at making gingerbread houses. The gingerbread dough looks yummy and wholesome. I just love the house you made with the candle in it. That one is magical!
