A family tradition, we put together mini-style gingerbread houses last Wednesday. I used graham crackers and had great success. The crackers are just lighter weight, therefore the houses don't collapse nearly as often. Of course it was a treat for the boys to all make their very own houses. I made gobs and gobs of icing (if any of my local friends need some for building houses let me know) and bought gobs and gobs of candy. The boys had a sugar feast. Wednesday was a day my nephew had no school so he was able to get in on it with us for the fun. Yum!
