Thanksgiving fun with gingerbread...

The Thanksgiving break was too short!  It was very nice to slow down, eat tons and tons of yummy food and work on crafting projects.  (Many of which I will share soon, and some of which will have to wait until after the holidays, so family and friends don't accidentally find out their gift too early!)

One of our little traditions that my hubby and I have started is to get our friends that don't go home for the holiday together to eat with us.  Then after, we all make our own gingerbread creations.  You may remember some of the fun we had last year from this post. We got pretty carried away!

This year, since there were only 3 of us doing the decorating, we decided to do one big one together.  We made a gingerbread farm...dreaming of what we wish we had. (A farm, not one made out of gingerbread, hehe.)

Ok, so it is no crazy masterpiece, but it is so much fun!  We baked all the gingerbread and cut out the shapes we wanted.  Thus....many things are not proportionate. hehe

Here is a close up of the rendition of my hubby as a gingerbread farmer, and the barn (it went through a gingerbread storm and blew down but was then repaired) and our gingerbread crops on the patch of green.  You can totally grow crops in gingerbread world.

And below you can see a close up of the giant bunny that is our friend, as well as a funny llama/camel thing.  There are sheep in there, too, but they are hard to see.  Oh, and the giant dog is watching them all.

And the thing I worked on the hardest was the little house that we gingerbread folk live in.  With holiday lights, even!

Whatever your traditions are, I hope that you had a great time!
