Gingerbread Houses

12 Days Of Christmas ~ Day #4

In my house it wouldn't be Christmas without the tradition of making gingerbread houses.  It is one of my boys favorite things and they look forward to it every year.  This year instead of using graham cookies I thought I would make the real deal.  I found a gingerbread house cookie cutter at Michaels.  

This part really turned out to be half of the fun for the boys and made this process take a few days.  We found our recipe off of Simply Recipes.

Once we had the gingerbread pieces all baked and iced together it was time to get to the good part, Decorating.

For me it is really fun to watch how their gingerbread houses progress through the years.
