Gingerbread House

 We have made our first ever gingerbread house!

We borrowed a house cutter for all the pieces.

Then iced and decorated it while it was flat, waited for it all to set hard then glued it together with icing.

We had to glue in stages, first the sides, then roof then doors, chimney, people and trees.

We're saving it until Monday when Auntie Lizzie arrives and we're with the cousins, can't wait!

And today in the snail mail a letter from Santa in Lapland arrived, yippee!

And old elf friend of mine made it happen!  And Santa even sends his regards to our dog Chloe!  He knows everything!


  1. Oh smart thinking decorating before assembling. You and your kids did a wonderful job. Musk sticks are a favourite here so it'd be a struggle for any to make it to the gingerbread house before being eaten.

    1. Was a bit like that here too! Went to put some more sticks on later and the tin was empty!

  2. Looks an awesome gingerbread house. Merry Christmas to you all Kerrie x

  3. Great pics, letter looks great.
    Hope you all have a great Xmas.............

  4. That looks fantastic. I bought the cutters and even made the dough and that's as far as I got. Shame on me. Next year....x
