gingerbread houses

We finally made our gingerbread house!

This year, it’s three mini houses. the largest decorated by my 9 year old, who got very involved with the piping.

My 7 year old (with my husband) did one covered in m&m’s and marshmallows. I made an all-white icing one.

In case you’re curious, I used the gingerbread cookie recipe from ‘Christmas 101’, my favorite Christmas cookie cookbook of all time. And the patterns came from somewhere deep inside Pinterest. (Though it’s pretty easy to just make a pattern yourself)

After Christmas dinner this will be consumed by my children in a messy crumbly sugar-fueled frenzy while I drink rum and smile as if nothing untoward is happening.

Happy Holidays!
