gingerbread graham cracker houses

So here they are after some few too many collapses, glue icing on every surface including my glasses and a semi melt down by S1 but it was all good and worth it. I am so happy we made them and we will be pros in the future at it, I think. Well off to cook dinner and then off to look at Christmas decorations.




Do you see some Christmas decorations peeking out, I finally cheered up and decked the halls a little :) My sister and I also finished up our Christmas shopping, we killed it this weekend!! :)

  6. The houses look great. Glad you perked up and did some decorating. I'm still scrooge-like, although I did put a wreath on the front door.

  12. so yummy looking!! I just bought those marshmallows from the store yesterday--plans for hot cocoa... I got a gingerbread kit and the prob. is, I never know when to start making a gingerbread house... so it's "fresh" for Christmas.--i dunno --silly. Yours look great. Glad you decorated and shopped. It snowed all weekend and all i did was cook, watch tv, computer and play with the baby.
