I've always loved the idea of making homemade ginger bread houses for the kids but had never done it. I decided his year was the year! We invited the Tanners and Acostas kids over and got to work baking before the big night. Our house smelled sooo Christmassy delicious while I baked all the houses that morning. They were kind of a pain to assemble but I'm really glad I did it he morning before the guests arrived so the icing had time to harden for the kids. The kids loved decorating and put lots of thougt into their decor. The house still smelled amazing the next couple days and every time we walked past the kids houses we got another whiff of the gingery goodness.
