Homemade Gingerbread "Houses"

On our trip to Wichita, Ellie mentioned she'd like to make homemade gingerbread houses. At the time there were many suggestions: a gingerbread outhouse, a gingerbread trailer, a gingerbread post office, etc.

So on Saturday, Ellie and Geoff came over with the ingredients and we baked the necessary amount of gingerbread for one house and one Alamo (Geoff's idea, with which Mike ran). There was some left over dough for gingerbread men to eat, of course!

On Sunday, a cold and rainy day here in San Antonio, we bought candy decorations and Ellie and Mike worked on their final products while Geoff helped and I provided moral support (and watched Christmas Vacation).

Festive roof!

Santa Ana looks sad!
