my gingerbread house 2010

for some reason i was really excited to make a gingerbread house this year. weird considering i am now just 2.5 weeks away from having a 3rd baby in the house. the last couple years i have taken it easy and just made pretty basic simple ones. i decided to step it up a small notch this year. here she is:
this may be my favorite one i've ever made. it is just so simple and sweet. obviously it is sweet, but do you know what i mean? i really like the color palette.
i made some baked goods to go inside the window. there are more in the side windows too.

and there is a sale on this week...


here is a pretty lame little guy i made. i didn't have patience to be making such a tedious thing.
we will be making houses with the kids soon. i am glad i have mine done so i can help a little more this year with theirs. merry christmas!

so cute! Great idea to make it a bakery!

Oooh the colours are really cute and soft! I love the marshmallow tree and the baking in the window. And I was looking at how cute the little guy was and then read that you called him lame....certainly not. He's so handsome in his little scarf!

This is such a cute gingerbread house. I think there must be something about having a baby around Christmastime that makes a Mom want to go above and beyond. I had baby #4 last December and was way more excited about Christmas stuff. I think it is nesting.

Are you kidding me... I concur with "mom", I'd totally move in. I've been waiting for the gingerbread houses activity to appear on our advent calendar, you've made me even more excited.
