Do you Gingerbread?

Holiday | Tradition Inspiration

Does your family make a gingerbread house during the holidays? This is one of my kiddos favorite traditions...thanks to Hansel & Gretel who doesn't love a candy house! Here are a few images to get you in the mood (if you haven't already made your masterpiece this year).

I made a gingerbread house just last night. Had so much fun decorating it. I will be posting pics next week. Thanks for the sweet pictures.

great inspiration...we're having a gingerbread house contest this weekend so I'm secretly using these as inspiration to give mine the winning edge!!! LOL

We often have a gingerbread house competition -- girls against boys. The boys usually win -- they use power tools.

This is a tradition in our home every year. My kids are all teenagers and my daughters birthday falls the week before Christmas so they do it the day before we celebrate her birthday. When everyone shows up we vote anonymously and the winner receives a little cash! Its been so fun to watch them get a little more creative every year! My future son in law and his brother will join in this year too! Love it!!

We love to make them...I usually find a house in a magazine that I love. Then we draw up plans and start baking. So much fun...
Did you see on AOL the play/gingerbread house that they built for St. Jude? It is so awesome.
Thanks for showing us all the cool house :)

I have made it a tradition to make one of these wonderful houses with my grandaughter every year - even though we only see each other a couple of times a year. We make one whenever we are together - we have made them in July, April and of course December!
These pictures make me happy.

These are great! I am co-hosting a gingerbread party with some kids on Saturday. I plan to post some pictures on my blog next week. I love the pretzel sticks - I might add those to our candy kiddie.

I've always wanted to make a gingerbread house and have yet to do it.
