Every year our favorite tradition is making gingerbread houses. We have been doing an every other year one big one or one each little ones. In some ways the little ones are easier, some ways not. There is a lot more cutting out and baking, but they hold together easier and no fights about how to decorate.
This year we made the houses into our Christmas train village. They are not proportional to the train but so what.
Age14's is hilarious. It's like a boarded up house with graffiti. On one part it says Coal for X-mas! The door is boarded up and there are ginger-body parts strewn all over. Somehow mine is the only one with out something in the chimney.
