"G" is for Gingerbread

We're busy making some gingerbread tree ornaments.


I found some very old gingerbread dough in the freezer which we used to make the cookies.
The kids designs are much more creative than Mommy's little stars:


First we started with the dough, candy decorations and cutters:


Lots of small candies for decoration:


Girl #1 making the most use of her dough:


Girl #2 painstakingly decorating her shapes:


All decorated and ready to bake:


I made the more adult version:


We made the holes for the hanging ribbon with a straw:


Simply poke and twist:


All baked:


And we're cooling:


Strings on and ready to hang:


The kids designs:


Nothing says Christmas like the smell of gingerbread, can't wait to get them on the tree this weekend.
