We have made a gingerbread house each Christmas that we've been together, so this year was our third one. We used a boxed kit since we had more important baking going on in the house. We also used the box icing for the first time, and honestly it didn't turn out as badly as I suspected!
We manage to work in the year on the back of each house. Here are the houses in progression from 2009 to now. Can't wait until 2012!
