Here is 2012′s version of our Gingerbread House– 27 years of making one! To see last year’s, click here. This year we decided to stick with a red/green/white theme–
Funny story– at first, I set up the gingerbread house in front of the christmas tree to use the light bokeh as a backdrop, but I thought it was too busy. So I set up a white blanket on the couch and draped it with some white lights. About halfway through my gingerbread “photo shoot”, my cat decided that the lights looked like a comfy place to nap, so he jumped up and settled in– thankfully, he curled up into a little ball and is blocked by the house in most of the pictures, but I just had to take a few pictures of him when I was done.
I also did end up playing with the lights on my tree– even though Christmas isn’t even here yet, I’m already dreaming of summer!
