Our version of the Gingerbread House

Simon and I been doing lots of fun Christmas crafts and projects this past few weeks. Finally got around to the gingerbread house! This is our afternoon:

Started with graham crackers and HOT glue. Lots of hot glue.
Glued 5 like this:

Candy of course!!

Graham cracker thief!! I got lots of help from here on out, when he figured out what I was doing!!

Still gluing...

...and reinforcing with more hot glue!

All graham crackers aren't even. Guess we'll call this the back of our house! :)

My lil helper!

Royal icing ingredients

Mix 7-10 minutes

Waiting patiently..

Yay we got stiff peaks!!

Time to decorate, roof first!!

Add the candy!!

Lots and lots of candy. I think Simon was eating as fast as he put it on our house!
