Happy New Year with a Gingerbread Snoopy’s Doghouse


I’m a bit late with my New Year’s Greetings, but that’s nothing new! ūüôā ¬†(At least it’s still January) ¬†Here’s Snoopy, apparently fast asleep atop his doghouse, but in reality he’s thinking deep thoughts about the new year, and wishing the best for you and yours in 2014.Gingerbread Snoopy's - Happy New Year 2014We did a gingerbread decorating day with my sister and all of our kids, and after the frosting stopped flying, and the kids rumbled off to their next activity, I assembled this gingerbread doghouse for cookie Snoopy. ¬†I used the birdhouse pattern that I printed from the instructions¬†here, and just trimmed in the roof sections a bit and cut out the doorway. ¬†Then decorated with royal icing and nonpareil snowflakes. ¬†Snoopy is such a comforting image from my childhood! ¬† Here’s Snoopy’s doghouse with some Christmas lights that I swiped from my nephew…..Gingerbread Snoopy They didn’t stay on too long when my nephew finally noticed them….!Gingerbread Snoopy - Page 001 Gingerbread Snoopy - Page 002I just love gingerbread!! ¬†YUM! ¬†I usually end up making some in February, too, not just for Christmas! ¬†Anyways, have a great New Year!
