Gingerbread House Competition 2010

We haven’t completely unpacked yet but by golly we decorated gingerbread houses yesterday! LOL! Priorities people! Priorities! With that said…..

…..It’s that time again. Time for you to vote for your favorite decorated gingerbread house.

We do this every year and my family loves it when you vote on your favorite house. And because I don’t want to cheat or give any  hints to who’s is who’s, I’m just going to put them in random order and you vote for your favorite one!

1. The Gingerbread Salute!

Now don’t worry about hurting anyone’s feelings. We do this just for fun and the fact that I’ve won the past 3 years hasn’t made anyone bitter, especially not my daughter who thought for sure that her gingerbread house would win last year. LOL!

Have a FABULOUS day!



  1. I do love them all but my favorite is #4 Pepperment Palace. The candy cane heart is just the cutest ever!
    Everyone did a great job! We are finishing our Gingerbread House today while the wind howls outside.

  2. And once again, they are ALL absolutely wonderful and I can hear the laughter that must have accompanied all the fun of making them. BUT my vote goes for #1 The Gingerbread Salute!! Nice job!!

  3. So cool!! I love the peppermint one:-)

  4. OK....The Peppermint Palace is adorable...I love this one!! But, how can you turn down the Red, White and Blue....

  5. OH my goodness! We do a gingerbread house every year and I just Love them!!!! I LOVE all the wonderful ideas on these you've posted! How creative! Praying you have a wonderfully blessed Christmas!
    In Him,

  6. My favorite is #2! Love it! But they are all wonderful. This is our first year decorating a gingerbread house and we are all going to do it together. Right now it's sitting on the counter naked...

  8. #5 because I love it's originality, and the use of the word "endeavor" ROCKS royally! (cuz I'm a word diva)

  9. They are all good and would all tempt me to pull a few candy pieces off hoping nobody would notice - LOL!! Though I like the Gingerbread Salute a lot, my favorite is #4 Peppermint Palace!!

  11. Number 2's curb appeal is just way to strong to ignore. :) The happy accident gets my vote!

  12. I love them all! The peppermint heart is particularly adorable! If I had to choose just one, I'd have to vote for #3, Candy Collage, coz I totally could have done that. 8-}

  13. From my kiddos: one for gingerbread salute, and one for peppermint palace. My youngest said peppermint palace is "ok", but gingerbread salute looks "yummy!" (;

  14. They're all awesome, but.....PEPPERMINT PALACE is my favorite!!

  15. Going for #2....I just hear the giggles and little hands at work....Blessings!

  16. I'm always a sucker for an American flag, so number 1 reeled me in really quick!

  17. Wow! Y'all did a great job! I love them all, but I'd have to say the Gingerbread Salute would be my fave. Go figure, right?! LOL!
