Gingerbread Houses

Remember when we were pretending that it's not January so I can still post Christmas stuff? Well, lets keep that up, because this gem is came before Christmas.

My Mother in Law is pretty darn cool. She asked me to invite my old friends over so we decorate gingerbead houses. My two besties from High School drove up and we had a decorating and Christmas Card swapping party.

My decorating parnter:

My house was pretty much doomed from the beginning when I opened the box and most of the peices were already broken. I'm pretty sure at some pouint throughout the night at least everyone there had to help me hold my house together while I added even more frosting or candy to hold up areas of the house. I was determined to make that thing work.

And lo and behold, it did. Take that message kids, deteremination pays off. And so does eating lots of licorice.
And it became indestructable thanks to all of the candy and frosting support. It even survived a dog attack. I pretty much rocked that thing.
We made quite the lovely gingerbread house lane. We made up all sorts of stories of what neighborhoods our houses came from. Mine obviously is from some sort of ski resort, since you know, it was snowed in.

And Hal...well, his came from the other side of the tracks.

I have always wanted to make a gingerbread house but never have. Maybe next year!

Oh my heck, what a fun party idea! I'm totally putting this on my Christmas to-do list next year.

And I loved Hal's house from the other side of the tracks. Hilarious.

I hardly ever finish decorating the houses because I eat all the decorations as I'm putting them on! :)
