One of my favorite Christmas traditions is the evening we decorate Gingerbread Houses.
I have posted pictures of previous years here and here and here.
This year it was four of us. A small intimate gathering. Brimming with enough enthusiasm (and bowls of candy) to fill a village.
And that is exactly what we did!
My husband and I took on a village, which we referred to as CandyLand....
|Houses assembled. Candy bowls filled.|
|Laying out the road and deciding how many trees to include.|

|Last minute details, ooops mailbox needs a flag.|
|Welcome to our CandyLand village - would you like a gum drop?|
Our youthful guests spent time picking a theme, crafting 'jolly rancher' designs and working on miniature people.
Ta da, here is a discreet (and quite beautiful) Gingerbread Meth House featuring Walt and Jesse from the hit series Breaking Bad.

|Such a sweet home!|

A really fun tradition.
