Gingerbread Houses and more! I thought I would show you some work done by one of my daughter’s. Kim is a pastry chef extraordinaire. She works for Notre Dame University and the chefs routinely support charity fund-raising during the holiday season. Kim created two gingerbread houses this year. I think both look like watercolor paintings – Hmmm – could be inspiration! The first Charlie Brown House was done for a silent auction. Very true to Charlie Brown and his little tree.

The second house (IMO) is exceptionally beautiful. She made a book shaped house and the underside is the cover of the famous Night Before Christmas book that we all know.

We are a gingerbread house family. One of my other daughters made a gingerbread house and used it as the centerpiece for her holiday cookie exchange. Her kiddos have already started eating the decorations off it so no pix. It was a real treat for the eye.

I hope these photos make your Christmas Merry!
