Here is a backwards look at the ones we've done:
2007 ~ We made a Christmas tree to go with the house last year. It was so cute, I think that was my favorite part. If you look to the right side, that's a little pond and a sled. The little candy ornaments on the tree kept mysteriously disappearing. Hmmmm....still a mystery to this day.
2006 ~ That's my friend Lori, who we make the gingerbread houses with every year. She offers up her kitchen to become a huge, sticky, mess and never has a bad thing to say as we are scrubbing dried confectionary sugar off her floor. Big props to her for that! My favorite thing this year was the Blow Pop walkway. It was near impossible to make those things stand up! The kids loved it though! I really like the little chimney on this one and the grass on the front lawn.
2005 ~ Our first year! My little guy was just a baby so his gingerbread boy is in a diaper! We made a little pond out of tiny blue candies and a Christmas tree in the window. The little snowmen seem to be enjoying it. This house might be my favorite, it was the year a new tradition began. I hope we keep it up and have many more sticky, gooey messes to look forward to.
