Christmas Countdown – Free Gingerbread Church Pattern

One of our favorite holiday traditions is baking Christmas Cookies with our family and friends, particularly decorating gingerbread cookies.  There are so many possibilities when decorating gingerbread men and gingerbread houses.  Add some candy, maybe some sprinkles here and there for a confectionary treasure.
