Xmas Gingerbread McMansion

28 Dec


So, this was our first attempt at a gingerbread house, and we were pretty pleased with the result.

Note the musk stick pile of wood by the side of the house, the raspberry mushrooms growing around the back, and the smarty ducks (as in ducks made of Smarties, not ducks who need to learn when to button their bills) who are swimming happily in their pond nearby.

My husband and I had such a great day constructing it. It was a real return to childhood for us. So much love went into this house! … And then I ate most of it. 🙂

My sister has decided that next year we are having an official family gingerbread house competition. I’m already looking forward to that.
