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! 🙂  (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 Doghouse_dennasideas.com - 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 Doghouse_dennasideas.com They didn’t stay on too long when my nephew finally noticed them….!Gingerbread Snoopy House_dennasideas.com - Page 001 Gingerbread Snoopy House_dennasideas.com - 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!
