Holiday Dresses, Christmas Trees & Gingerbread Houses: Part 3

After tree hunting, my boyfriend and I hosted our first Annual Gingerbread House Extravaganza.

And even though I didn’t know what to expect because I’d never made a gingerbread house before, I was still psyched to get started!

And yes, I can see where some might think this is a lame way to spend a Saturday night – but I swear it was so much fun! I mean the toppings alone were enough to convince me that this needed to become an annual tradition!

And our little gingerbread village turned out awesome – even though my boyfriend turned his into a XXX shop and my sister incorporated a decapitated gingerbread man in hers.

But I’m attributing these poor decisions – and the ridiculousness that ensued afterwards – to the massive sugar high we were on from the start!

The ‘before’ shot

A few of the toppings – yummm!

My masterpiece!

Note the gummy bears riding the polar bears

My boyfriend’s gingerbread porn shop – sigh

We nicknamed this one Barbie’s Outhouse

My sister’s gingerbread house came complete with crime scene

The village!


  1. These houses are fantastic! They look delicious.

  2. Thanks!! I've heard that the Barbie Outhouse is no more but I can't bring myself to destroy mine and eat it :)
