Hi,

This will be the place for gingerbread houses. My wife make fully edible houses that are put together with "spit and love". The following houses were made by Jessica, our daughter in law and her friend Louise. They come to Springfield for a day with help from Lib. This the the second year and they spent 8 hours beginning with precooked walls and roofing. They put up the walls, dried the morter, decorated, installed roofs, dried morter, and decorated more.

I think they did a great job. This is Jessica's house:

This is Louise's house:

Here are Jessica, Lib and Louise with their houses:
