Gingerbread House

Tim's mom wanted Tim to build a large (almost life-size) gingerbread house to put up for Christmas. It's finally done! Tim did most of the construction part and Pam pretty much did everything else. I think it turned out really good!


The roof is covered with Necco wafers (that Tim's mom cut out) and there is a row of gum drops on top. The window (which has a light inside at night) is lined with red hots. There are also planter boxes with mint candies and with poinsettias inside. The door is a grahm cracker. The rest I think you can figure out. It's about as tall as me, and all collapsable to be able to store.

Are you kidding?! That thing is amazing! My kids would die! Way to go Tim. Kami I love how creative you guys are! Isaac would seriously want to play in it every day. So much cooler than my cardboard box houses :) LOVE IT! Did I say that all ready?!!

What a cute idea! Tim and Pam, you guys out for hire?! A full on real gingerbread house would be fantastic for entertaining my kids. Isaac's house is cute too. Poor Pace children. We need to invest in some wood and/or cardboard!

Pretty cool house! My kids would probably try to eat it instead of play in it. Very creative I have to say. Hopefully I'll see you tomorrow.

Now you know that when you guys get into a home, you can deck your yard out with cool stuff that Tim builds. That is such a talent. With your creativity and Tim's engineering skills, you guys are unstoppable.
