Can you believe that Christmas is just two weeks away?

We have been having fun over here enjoying the season and during the weekend

we took the time to bake some delicious Ginger Bread Houses.

 

We kept one more year our tradition of making with them

my kiddo’s adorable Christmas Village.

 

Today I’m sharing here our Ginger Bread Recipe and Free Printable Template for the houses.

Wait, there is more!

 I am also visiting my dear friend Jen over at Tatertots and Jello

and sharing there an adorable gift idea using this same recipe.

Make sure to visit with us when you are done here.

Busy day!
