William and I got to make 2 gingerbread houses this year. The first was at his preschool. We used pint size milk cartons and graham crackers to build our house and put on steeple/chimneys made from ice cream cones. The second one we built from a kit. The frosting was too thick so we thinned it and made it too runny, but I didn't feel like fixing it. I thought the houses both turned out great!
