It’s a gingerbread world

My short trip to Portland put me in the Christmas spirit; gingerbread houses are so much fun. I have great memories of building homemade gingerbread houses during Christmas time – always a favorite of my dad.

Take a look at the pictures below. This was a display of houses assembled and decorated by the art students at Milwaukie High School. The Milwaukie Albertson’s donated all the kits and set up the show in their store bakery section for everyone to see. There was a voting box for “best in show” as well as a donation box and a silent auction for the houses, all proceeds going directly to the Milwaukie HS art department.

Maybe this will give some folks out there ideas for their own gingerbread projects.

My two cousins and I certainly enjoyed decorating our own house – ta da!

our house is a very very very fine house
