Gingerbread house

We do a gingerbread house every year. It is just one of those fun traditions that brings our family together for some extra family time in this season. This year I purchased a book for Miss E on designing your own Gingerbread house. Since she likes to bake I thought that maybe this would be something she would enjoy taking over. She did a GREAT job with it!

After reading the book she planned out what she wanted the house to look like and what she would need to purchase for that design. She made the pattern by following the directions in the book (this involved pulling out the pencils and ruler to enlarge the pattern pieces that were in the book), made up the dough, rolled the dough out and cut out all of the pieces. My only responsibility was to put it in the oven, and take it out! Miss E made up the icing and Rob put the house together for her. I'm so proud of the great job she did on her first gingerbread house!

Everyone enjoyed covering the house with plenty of candy, and eating some too!
