I Wanna Move In-What a Beauty!

Yesterday, my friend and I headed over to Walmart and picked up some pre-assembled gingerbread houses with all the fixings included with one goal in mind:

To make us some gingerbread houses!

Man, I can't remember the last time I actually put together and decorated a gingerbread house...It has to be at least 8+ years.

Anyway, I took some pictures for your enjoyment, so.....Enjoy! Lol

Guess which one is mine?!

My lovely house made of gingerbread--It looks so good, I wish I could live in it! he he

This frosting was so damn hard to work with--Next time I'm just getting me a can of the real stuff and wingin' it.

My candy infested roof

How adorable is this walkway? Seriously, I'm so proud of it :D

Like the candy bushes? That was a last minute touch.

The back window overlooking the scenic soda pop lake and licorice forest ;-)
Gotta make it sell-able!

Close up of the back-The window just turned out okay(I could have done better)

I highly recommend making a gingerbread house just for the sheer enjoyment it brings--I felt like a little kid again :)

Love and Energies.

Yum, Yum I love gingerbread! I would have a hard time putting together the houses as I would want to eat it! You girls did a wonderful job, they are so cute!

I love it! Especially the roof.. Great job!

I've never made a true gingerbread house, only a hodge podge of graham crackers and royal icing. They looked pretty good though.
