Helena Cooper of Jasper, center, and her son Laurence, 4, right, began to coat his gingerbread house with frosting while his brothers, Martin, 9, left, and Francis, 6, delicately applied frosting to their houses at the Jasper Public Library Annex on Wednesday evening. Twenty-one gingerbread houses were assembled the night before for families to adorn the houses’ exteriors with candy including Twizzlers, gum drops, M&Ms, candy canes and pretzels.

 

Martin Cooper of Jasper, 9, used Chex cereal pieces to make shingles on his gingerbread house.

 

Traycen Haase of Ireland, 5, added pretzels to his gingerbread house sides with help from his grandmother, Donna Haase of Jasper.
