Wordless Wednesday :: Our Gingerbread House

We made our gingerbread house this past weekend.  I bought a kit that came ready to put together. 

Step 1: House construction (Ryan had to take over this phase since I couldn't get the roof to stay in place). 

Natalie wanted to help

Step 2: Decorating.  Natalie went down for her nap and Claire wanted to change into Christmas PJ's
Note:  I am NOT artistic at all, but Ryan is :)  Claire liked to do the landscaping around the house since she had a hard time getting the candies to stick to the house.

Step 3:  The Finished Product

The back was neglected

Natalie woke up just as we were finishing, next year she'll be able to participate!


  1. So fun! I've wanted to do a ginger bread house for the last couple of years, but haven't gotten around to it. What a fun family tradition!

  2. LOL... I love the last pic "the back was neglected" :) Looks great though!!

  3. I wanted to make one of those, but time just flew by for us! Oh well, I guess there's always next year, or maybe this weekend. :-) Looks like you guys had fun!

  4. oops, that was Jen Hopkins!

  5. It looks fantastic! I always wanted to try to make one. Greg and I both have off tomorrow so maybe we could try. They look so cute!

  6. Aww it looks fantastic! Gingerbread houses are so much fun!! :o)
