Gingerbread House 2011

So Bear wanted to make a gingerbread house this year. We made it ALL from scratch. It took about 2 hours to get the measurements right for the model before we started baking. The gingerbread alone took about 5 hours to get everything made...then it took about another 17 hours (all from about 9:30pm to 1am) to get everything put together and decorated. PHEW! That was a lot of work, but it paid off. We think it looks pretty darn good. It is a gingerbread model of Bear's parent's house in Utah.

This will be one of our family traditions with our kids. Of course this will probably be the best looking one until all our kids are older, but still it will be a fun bonding time for all of us. I can't wait!
 Berlyn was very fascinated by the house. She wouldn't stop staring.
 Front. Like the porch?
Like our homemade trees? Skill right there...
 Sun room and garage.
 Basketball hoop and car.
 Homemade tree again, trampoline, and firewood. Look at the porch and stairs. Impressive huh?

 Why hello Santa. A little stuck?
Berlyn and the gingerbread house. :)
