I found this beautiful coffee mug this week, there was only 1 in the shop (just for me!) I was drinking a cappuccino and writing a list of things to do in my journal earlier on this week and it was such a pretty scene :)
I'm so grateful this is a cardboard cutout and not a person!!
Today we made gingerbread mug cookies (recipes & directions are here : http://www.notmartha.org/archives/2009/12/18/a-gingerbread-house-that-perches-on-the-rim-of-your-mug/ )
Here is the dough being cut out (Alyssa and Emily made the houses)
And assembled into a little house
And we iced the roof and put sprinkles on top
Here is another one, ours are too big for mugs ... I think the picture printed out too big, but they are VERY cute and we might make these instead of one large gingerbread house this year.
Emily said it was like a little village ... so that's what we will make closer to Christmas
The last two got a rainbow of smarties on top!
Ben wanted to make gingerbread men so he decorated these ones
