Gingerbread Houses

I know this is a little late but, it's probably better to be late than never!
One of the ways we celebrated Christmas this year was to make good ol' gingerbread houses! After heading to the library to find a really good recipe, we started the fun process.

First mix up the ginger bread dough:

Then roll out the pure yummy-ness.
It's always good to snitch a bite or two just to make sure it is good dough!

Cut out the sides and roof of the house --or in our case -- multiple houses.

Then bake and cool. After that, it's time to whip up some frosting!
Assemble the houses.

Oh, of course you can't forget all the yummy toppings!

Invite some friends over to help, and start creating your own masterpiece.

The finished product!

"Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!"
Psalms 34:8
