We were lucky enough to be invited over to a friends house to make gingerbread houses today. This being a tradition of theirs, I felt honored to be asked to attend. Each person brought some candies for decorating.
The gingerbread sides and roof pieces were already made, as was the frosting. The structural skeleton of each house was a gift box, folded and taped just so.
We sat in the sun, drank mimosas and constructed festive gingerbread houses. A perfect Sunday afternoon.
The houses turned out great! Carter’s is on the left with the pretzel stick Mohawk, mine has the green chimney, then our friend Missy’s and Kate’s houses, with Cody’s house on the far right.
There were others, but after I took this picture, I had another mimosa (or two) and chatted with friends – my camera forgotten.
