Gingerbread Fun

Every year, for the past 20 years (wow, we've gotten old!), we've celebrated Hanukkah with good family friends of ours by making gingerbread houses, or as we like to call them, Hanukkah houses. It's an event that we all look forward to, and the night is always filled with lots of laughs, lots of fun, and of course, lots of candy.

Its been somewhat of a tradition that each family's house is decorated in a theme, and over the years, we've come up with some pretty cool ones...

Back in 2006 my brother and I were on a red kick and decided that even though it was the middle of December we wanted to create a Valentine's Day house...

In 2007 we had some crazy fun creating Roxanne...I've noticed that whenever we need to name something in our family we name it Roxanne--the Hanukkah house, our navigation system, my brother's car....sheesh!

This year we decided to use banana chips on our roof and ended up creating a hula girl and a surfer for our tropical themed house. Pretty sure we all had summer on the brain.

-how cute is our hula girl?-
