Trailer Park Houses






One of our favorite Christmas traditions happened quite by accident. For year after year I had hoped to make a gingerbread house with my girls. It never quite happened. I even would buy the candy and make the frosting. One year we resorted to making houses out of graham crackers. My oldest DD was her usual creative self and made her "house" into a mobile home, trailer, if you will. We loved it so much that every year we now make a Trailer Park. This is our cul-de-sac from a couple years ago. Please check in with The Inspired Room for other fun Christmas posts.

  7. Look closely and you'll see that my son-in-law's trailer has a hitch. One year my DD1 had a pile of tires (peppermints). I've made a garden and there are always neighborhood dogs. I even got my DH to participate last year.
