With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Easter Peep Graham Cracker House

Easter Peep Graham Cracker House

Inspiration abounds on pinterest!  You have probably seen these adorable little peep houses made from graham crackers.  I visited Yesterfood to see how Joy made them.  A sweet Easter table decoration and a fun after-dinner treat for the kids. So fun, that one little guy determined he was NOT willing to share...

Royal Frosting (Recipe here) is the glue holding the graham crackers together forming a little coop to house a marshmallow peep that sits upon a nest of tinted coconut.
The graham crackers cut easily with a sharp knife.  I glued three sides to a bottom and then the roof pieces.  After the frosting hardened, additional frosting was used to attach the roof to the sides.
I piped some extra frosting onto graham crackers to make seating tags.
~ ready for brunch ~
Five of the kids sat at this small round table and everyone else at the large table with Jethro in a highchair.
I have always prepared Easter Dinner but this year we ate earlier and I served brunch foods. Ham cooked in the rotisserie with Pineapple Ham Glaze on the side, Easter Bread, Fluffy Pancakes with strawberries & whipped cream, sausage patties, scrambled eggs and asparagus.
 we did some chillin' before dessert 
Jared took some of his cousins to the park and even got a photo!
And, though Jet continually tossed food from his highchair to Raider all during dinner, he was not about to share his peep house!

As much as I know I should, I would be reluctant to share my Peep house, too. So cute and so are your grandchildren. Have a beautiful spring day!

Hi, I loved seeing your Easter brunch table as well as the Peep Gingerbread Houses. So very fun. Your table and dishes were beautiful. How many did you have in all-we had 17 total and it was a ball. You mentioned on Debbie's blog whether your hubby should get a Shingles shot-I'm here to stay that I had shingles when I was 42 and it was horrid. I'd much rather get a shot than have it. In fact, I need hubby to get one. Your man won't be sorry!
Grands and family make the world such a blessed place.Thanks for stopping by my place today.
Hugs, Noreen

These are darling!! I am sure that the grands loved them! (I'll bet the adults loved them too.) :)

Sweet faces around your table(s), Lorraine!

How adorable!! You are so talented. Everything looks beautiful and I know it was a good time for all. The kids are so,so cute!

PLEASE have your hubby get the shingles vaccine! My daughter has them and they are horrid and so extremely painful. It's like having all the nerves exposed and she can't stand anything to touch her when she has a breakout. Have you had the vaccine?
