Gingerbread Houses Galore

Yesterday The Baby Girl and I ventured out into the cold to do some “Christmas Stuff”.  We went to Houses of Hope annual gingerbread display.  Can I just say WOW!

Some of the houses were made by children, some by families and of course some were made by professionals.  I doubt I will miss this event in years to come, very festive and sure got me thinking about our “annual gingerbread decorating night”. 

These pictures make me smile.  This year The First Born and Scot With One T will be joining us, we are going to work as couples. 

I thought maybe this week The Baby Girl and I could do some research and be prepared!  I find great ideas here, great stuff here, did you know you can buy blue prints for your gingerbread house?  Check out Sweetopia she has a great house and tons of pictures like the ones below.

    Rumpke – too funny. I made gingerbread houses when the kids were little. They’re fun to make.

    Wow!! I’ve never seen such fun and creative gingerbread houses!! The dog house is my favourite 🙂 And the Whoville one is super-cute 🙂

    I made a gingerbread adobe one year. It was actually relatively simple to put together, because the roof was flat 🙂 I wish I could find pictures of it… sadly, that was years before digital cameras!!

    Have fun creating your house 🙂

    Thanks for checking out my office makeover 🙂

    Um hello, you need to head over to IKEA, and check out our fabulous creations! We spent 20 hours on our Whodey Holiday gingerbread house! And the Whoville gingerbread is pretty cool, but ours is the best.
