A Gingerbread Doghouse & More Gingerbread Inspiration!

Gingerbread Doghouse Ideas! The holiday season means one thing around our house…gingerbread houses! My Mom has been making them for years and years so building gingerbread houses is a more than just a tradition! It’s our seasonal way of life. We even helped Blakely and all her little two year old playmates make gingerbread houses this year!

My Mom made the ULTIMATE Gingerbread Doghouse this year that I know all dog-lovers will enjoy! Remember, get creative and think outside the “house” for your gingerbread creations this year. Shall we take a look at a few?
