This is our second year to do gingerbread houses....believe it is a new tradition in the Stahl household. Last year I purchased the houses at our local Mennonite store.....And this year I did

paper rolled up as well to make life easier.
(I do have to admit that I found this cute idea on pintrest!!! I LOVE pintrest!)
