Gingerbread Weekend!

I love Gingerbread Weekend! I love it almost as much as Christmas! Well, that's not entirely true, but Gingerbread Weekend is a big part of my Christmas prep each year, and I love THAT! This year was no exception, and I'm going to tell you all about it this week. :) But first, here's a picture of something new that I did over Gingerbread Weekend 2012:
OMGosh! The hats and mittens turned out soooo cute!
In years past, it's been all about the houses...even to the point that, when I wanted to just make cookies, I searched high and low for house cookie cutters! So every year there are gingerbread houses, but some years they involve far less construction! (Saves me money on general contractors! lol!) That's usually all the roll-and-cutting I will normally do...I guess I'm just too lazy to do a lot of cutout cookies most years...until now.
Tiny sugar pearls on the snowflakes!
This year, there are snowflakes, hats, mittens and socks, tiny trees and gingerpeople, and candy canes. "The little ones," says Mr. Pretty, "are like 'ginger chips!' Mmmmm!" This box of gingerbread, all decorated and ready to meet new friends, just makes me happy. =D After spending much of the weekend on my feet, cooking and baking and building and decorating (my feet hurt, but my heart is full of sugary-ginger-JOY!), that's a good thing.

Stay tuned for more details on what went on around here this weekend (and details about two gingerbread houses) throughout the week...I'll even share my recipes!

Thanks for stopping by! Can I offer you a cookie?

  1. They are so pretty! I bet they are delicious too. I realized this year that I don't even own any cookie cutters. Maybe Santa will bring me some in my stocking. :).
