Cookie Houses for Christmas

Cookie Houses for Christmas

My husband's Grandfather as a baker who immigrated to the US from Germany. His children and Grandchidren always looked forward to seeing the gingerbread houses that he made for each Grandchild. They were thrilled to see the house with their name piped in frosting above the doorway. We aren't professional bakers, so we make our houses from Graham Crackers, frosting and candy. It is still fun for everyone and a wonderful tradition to keep alive.

This layout was made using A Merry Season Collection Biggie.

Thanks for looking! I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas Season. Stay warm!

    What a beautiful layout and a great tradition. Karen
    What a lovely tradition - I am so glad you scrapped it. Your colors are perfect, but the torn white background with the stockings is just the right touch.
    This is such a wonderful layout and memory. Thank God for grandfathers.
