Gingerbread House Party!!

Today was the annual gingerbread house party at my friend Kris'.
This has become the start of the holiday season for me.
Kris bakes the houses, and we get to come and play.

this is one of the houses I made last weekend- when I got paid to play with gingerbread and candy.

I think this one is my Candy Land house. I can just see that little princess living here.

This is the second one I was working on that day, sort of traditional. Kris is going to take them to an assisted living place for some holiday cheer.

Here we are in full swing! Everyone does such different things and they are ALL soooooooooooooo cute! The lovely lady on the right in the back is a member of my large quilt guild.

Here we have the end of the afternoon, this is Kris in the gingerbread apron, and about half of our stash of house fixings.

She looks tired but happy. Such fun we have. The holidays can begin now. This week I'll start baking houses for my girls and my nieces to decorate after Thanksgiving. And of course there will be pictures!

I bet I know who made that bag that is sitting on the chair with Gingerbread Cookies all over it... What a fun day. I bet I would have liked to hide up there today....
