Today has all been about building gingerbread houses.  Beccy had her two 'besties' over to create.  This is not a cheap past time!!  Loads of sweets, 3 bags of icing sugar (yes really) and a crazy amount of ingedients:  but soooo much giggling and laughter

Unfortunately only two houses were completed. Laurens house kept collapsing inwards and then the gingerbread couldn't take the strain and started to bend and crack - I have advised her not to go into structrual engineering when she is older.  I felt so bad for her, but instead she got on with these 

And these were the final creations of Beccy and Beth

Defintely an afternoon well spent.  And tomorrow I get to do it all again with Jenny and two of her friends! 

My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the dreadful events in Conneticut.


  1. Oh brilliant! I want a gingerbread house!! Looks like so much fun :-)

  2. Oh they are fabulous. I have been debating whether to do a house this year or just stick to cookies. The girls may decide for me though. We shall see.

  3. Good work. They look loaded with sweets and other good stuff! Di x

  4. Looks like fun - do you get to eat a sweetie for every one you put on the house?!

  5. How wonderfully Christmassy! Glad to see lots of fun being had chez Sew Wonderful Life!
