I've been making gingerbread houses since the 60's for my sons and now my grand children. Each year I try something different or I revisit old ones. They have grown more complicated over the years. I have built barns, school houses with outside slides and swings, Castles with turrets, Merry-go-rounds that actually go around with reindeer for horses, candy stores with bicycles outside. Last year I build a replica of Houmas House (an old southern mansion with white columns and oak trees with moss and a widows walk. Because its Louisiana I send my version of the a Cajun House Night before Christmas. Hope you enjoy. Carolyn Bowman
