Gingerbread Houses For FHE

Monday night for Family Home Evening I decided it would be fun for the family to make Gingerbread Houses. Well I guess I should call them graham cracker houses, since this is what we used. I made a big old crock-pot of hot chocolate using Janel's recipe ( YUMMY and thank you Janel!) and it was a hit with everyone.
We all had a good time with a few people having some tummy aches afterwords from eating candy and icing. The first is of Coco & Kyles they call it the White Trash Trailer. (Clever) Kyle had never built a gingerbread house before and he seemed to really get into it.

Dallas built this one. Do you notice the ear candy on the side of the roof! This is left over Halloween candy. EWW!
E'lyse made this one.
This is Faiths. Alan had to help with her structure it kept falling apart.
Gabby's little house . I love the big snowman on the side of the house.
This is my log cabin.
The village! May we always stay this close to one another.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Those houses rock!
I think I will use your graham cracker idea next year. We did a gingerbread train from a kit, and it wasn't very fun to put together, I like freestyle better.
