Gingerbread Village

We had a family get together weekend not long ago, and my daughter and daughter-in-law (independent of each other) both bought gingerbread house kits for us to put together.  Our family likes to make crafts and play games when we get together.  One year it was balloon hats. 

We had fun making them.  The highly decorated gingerbread person in the lower right was made by my three year old granddaughter.  I think she thought the more candies she could fit on the cookie, the better.

Some houses turned out better than others.  Mine ended up being a rickety A-frame with a red door.  And one house succumbed to a pile of rubble.  We decided there was the upper end of town.... and then there was the lower end in our village.

If you want to see some really advanced gingerbread house making, head over to Robayre's blog.  She has a yearly contest with her family and friends.

Happy Sewing ♥
