home sweet home

Well you know...in this house, almost everything is grounds for blog fodder, especially when it's creative. lol Monday the kids had some fun making home sweet home...our first gingerbread house in years. While I wasn't part of the procedure, it was super fun, even if it didn't quite turn out like intended. I'm still lovin it! They had fun together and if the icing just did not set up that well...so what!

Here's what our lovely sweet gingerbread house looks like.

Now every house needs a little structural reinforcement. Ours is LUCKY enough to have a lovely blue bow.

Oh that every roof should be so sweet and yummy...

Every roof needs a little ventilation, right?

I guess that icing just didn't want to set up like it should. Note to self...the Costco Gingerbread House kit is fun and quick but next year....make the icing from scratch! This one just did not want to harden into mortar.

Have a sweet day!



  1. Beautiful gingerbread house--thank heavens for the reinforcement! The less perfect creations with the family are the ones that make the best memories, don't you think?!

    Here's wishing you and your beautiful family a VERY Merry Christmas!

  2. Love the blue bow to help out the house. Too bad the roof did not want to stay put. Not to self, follow Julia's advice also make icing from scratch.


Thanks for stopping by Finding Beauty @ Home. And thanks for your lovely comments. I appreciate each one. Have a beautiful day!
