Gingerbread houses

I know some - maybe most - people eat their gingerbread houses, but me and my mom just decorate a pre-made kit gingerbread house - but make it extraordinary - and set it out in the front hall, so that's why i put it in the decoration section.

Every year, we go OVER THE TOP with our ginger bread house. We used to use our largest cutting board, but that just was too small, so we upgraded last year to my mom's sewing table. If we didn't use the dining room table to eat at Christmas, you can definatly bet that we'd use that instead.

So, Gingerbread houses are a VERY BIG tradition in my house, and so i thought i'd post last year's Gingerbread house, and then later on this year, i'll post this years. If any one else has some Gingerbread house pictures, it'd be wonderful to post them, so we can all "Ooh and Ahh" at them.

Gingerbread '07

(Sorry, if i posted this already, but i keep searching and i just can't find it.)

I have only ever made one house. It was about 10years ago with our youngest son. We had a terrific time, maybe I'll do one this year, you've given me the inspiration!

I love the trees, they are really cute! I have never made a gingerbread house ... they look very difficult to make.

Very cute! We make ours every year but never eat them. This is my first Christmas since being diagnosed with gluten intolerance, so I am trying to find some gluten free (wheat free) graham crackers.

That looks really pretty. I have a pic. on here somewhere when my 6 year old daughter decorated her gingerbread house from last year. I will check and see if I can find the thread and post the pic.
