making gingerbread houses

Emma really likes the idea of gingerbread houses. She sees them in books, made of cardboard at Whole Foods and made of actual gingerbread at bakeries, so we decided to make mini versions of them with graham crackers. Last Sunday, we invited family to get together to construct some delicious little houses.

We all contributed something to make the sugary mess that was our gingerbread village. I used a combination of peanut butter and vanilla frosting to put together our house, mostly because it tasted delicious. I had a mug of coffee and unlimited supply of graham crackers with this tasty concoction and it resulted in a big sugar/caffeine high!
