It’s officially time to start thinking about gingerbread houses. For the past several years I have made gingerbread houses with my sister and our kids {and our mom if she’s here}. It’s fun to see the houses change over the years as our kids get older and have new interests. It’s always a nice afternoon filled with lots of treats. For the past couple of years I’ve been keeping a Pinterest board for gingerbread house ideas. I love looking at all the photos before construction day to get ideas for what kind of supplies we will need this year. This year I am loving all the houses that are lit from within. I’m not sure I’ll try that yet, but it does look very pretty. The melted candy windows have attracted my attention, too.

Do you make gingerbread houses each year? Would you like to see the ideas I’ve pinned? Feel free to join me on Pinterest to gather a few ideas for your house.
