A bunch of neighbourhood mums got together with our children this weekend and decorated these mini gingerbread houses. I made the houses up with a friend the day before using graham crackers and icing à la Martha and then they went to town with icing and candy. Not before I photographed them in the dusting of snow we had in the morning. Madness, but they looked so magical!
The Christmas after we first moved into our house, a neighbour, who we barely knew and who has since unfortunately moved away, delivered one of these on a plate with a bag of candy and a bag of home made icing to each of the children in the neighbourhood, ready to decorate. Such a wonderful and unexpected gift that my children have never forgotten.
