Gingerbread House Rules: Wordless Wednesday

We’d never decorated a gingerbread house before so we don’t know the rules.

All I know is that we decked out our house (kinda) and set it on the counter to live.

Almost immediately, chunks of gingerbread started disappearing. The base was the first to go. Then the people. The walls crumbled, and eventually we were left well…this.

The state of our gingerbread house last week.

Do you decorate gingerbread houses? If so, what are your rules about decorating? And eating?

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates.

  4. Happiest of holiday’s to you, Renee! We didn’t make a gingerbread house this year–ours usually gets stale because none of the elves want to mess it up by eating it!🙂

  8. You guys and the elves. Silly! It’s been ages and ages since I made a gingerbread house, and so, unfortunately, have no advice for you. Except to maybe put some elf repellent out around it or something.
