Gingerbread Houses (& a winner)

Our 2010 Gingerbread Houses
I'd like to thank everyone who entered the Chex Mix Party Giveaway from MyBlogSpark! I loved hearing about everyone favorite neighbor gifts to give and receive (check out some of the awesome suggestions in the comments here!) The winner of the giveaway (thanks to is Laraine Eddington!  Get me your address and we'll have it shipped out to you! She has the funniest blog, check it out!
This is my little man's gingerbread house from last year- a small milk carton + graham crackers + royal icing (don't forget all the candy you can pile on!) My family makes these every year and it's a ton of fun for all ages! Definitely a favorite Christmas tradition. We are staying busy around here and enjoy the excitement and fun little kids bring to the holidays. They're already pretty hyped and the big day is still a bit away. It's going to be sporadic around here as usual but we're enjoying this special season with our families and that's the best part of all.

  1. What a cute and easy idea to put together for the kids. I am sure my kids would love to make their own gingerbread house. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. I totaly agree with Jackie. The gingerbread house looks awesome. I also love to use whenever I need to decide for something which should be random. :)
