I love that we have been decorating gingerbread houses since both kids were tiny and had chubby little faces and arms! I have a chubby arms and it’s just from eating all of that candy. That’s downside of decorating a gingerbread house… you have candy all over the place. Great for kids… bad for mom’s behind:-)

My favorite trees are made with ice cream cones. I let the kids “paint” them with melted icing.

My friend, Belinda makes the most fabulous gingerbread houses, but you can easily make your own or get a ready made cookie kit.

I loved the swing and pool on this house. It was a request by my kids! Gum works great for decorating, but watch out if you have a gum loving daughter like me! Your cute pink sidewalk might be gone in a few days.

This house was decorated with a lot of creativity by my kids. I thought it turned out super cute! My son, the Lego fanatic, had fun building the candy cane fence.
