Yeeeeeeeeah! My gingerbread dream :)

Okay folks! I'm a Catholic too (although in Russia we have the most Orthodox people) - so I needed to do it asap before the 25th! These two days I was REALLY-AWESOMELY-FANTASTICALLY-EXCLUSIVELY-ABOLUTELY busy!!!! Both yesterday and today were dedicated fully to my latest creation - Arina's first gingerbread house!!!! Well, it turned out to be a mansion more than a house LOL And - it is TOTALLY done from scratch! We don't have any kits for sale here in Russia so I had to download a pattern, print and cut it out, then make my own dough based on a recipe, even icing is egg whites whipped with sugar powder and lemon juice... Man, was I exhausted??? LOL But I found myself so addicted - I felt like a small child in a fairytale! - that I created two houses - the second one will go as a gift for my parents. DD often goes to their place and enjoys her staying there, so they NEEDED that house! LOL

For sure I had some extra dough so I baked those cute Xmas trees to give as small gifts for our dear ones and friends :) I decorated them with icing and sugar balls - well, tomorrow I'm going to shop for some cute gift wraps! :)

Oh gosh, I think that's all :) I falling down tired and excited :)

Merry merry merry Christmas to all of you guys!!!
