The events of 9/11 made me want to create a tradional American gingerbread house this year, so I chose
this simple New England farmhouse with the flag proudly displayed. We also lost our yellow Labrador
retriever, Sara, this year, so she had to be included, sleeping on the front porch. Her younger "sister" Cass
is chasing a ball on the front lawn.
Here's a straight on angle. Can you see the horses in the barn? There are sheep in there, too, and next
year there will be pigs (if I do a farm scene)because I found a tiny little pig cookie cutter in a nearby kitchen
shop just after the holidays this year!
