haunted houses



We are so spooky around here! I tell ya!

I've seen Haunted Gingerbread Houses here and there and I've thought to myself, "cute, but so much work! maybe when the kids are older..." Then it occurred to me to use my house cookie cutter for the same idea. And it could be simple enough that Andrew could help. So, yesterday we made the cookies and today we decorated them. He dipped them in colored glaze, I did the detail work. And voila! A whole haunted neighborhood!

Are the ghosts separate little cookies? Or candies? Those are great!

Those haunted houses are fantastic, we don't get nearly as creative here in the UK.
