Cutest Houses on the Block!

We had a great time with our neighbors decorating our Gingerbread Houses. The kids all came up with their own creations that ended up showing off their individual personalities. Leah ate as much candy as she put on her house, Sam had a very well-planned house with a garage and very uniform walk-ways. He got some ideas from our 13 year old neighbor who also had a very intricate and organized house. Shaunie didn't want an empty orange juice box as a foundation, so she tried to stick it all together without anything to stablize it. She started with a great brick wall made of tootsie rolls, but it all collapsed with the weight of candy. She wasn't too upset and I think next time she'll go for the empty orange juice box. Our great neighbors came over with their kids and they all kind of fed off of each others creativity. It was fun to watch them. We love this tradition.

That looks like so much fun! I have never made a ginger bread house before. Now I can have your kids teach mine how!
