Graham Houses

Since 2002 we've had the family tradition of making gingerbread houses. It all started when Sean was a youth pastor in St. Louis. I got the joy of hanging out with all the young ladies and coordinating "get togethers". I found a website online that should a simple way of cutting the grahams and using Almond Bark for frosting. It works great and dries rather quickly. We have learned tables clothes are a must! Also cake piping bags and precutting is helpful.  The kids have also learned "DO NOT eat too much candy or you will get sick!" ( I will spare the details of one year) :)

Here was last Christmas 08...


And this years creations...

Thus, it has become one of the favorite Holiday events in the Buckout House.  Even buying all the candy excites the kids. Each year we find out new ways to use it :)

Have a wonderful Christmas!
