The Gingerbread House Results are In! You have spoken!

But I think I’ll recap the night first.

As always there is LOTS of candy. And you’ll be happy to know that I didn’t eat one morsel.

We all started with gingerbread kits. It just makes life a “little'” easier.

Once again our BFF’s joined us in the fun. And I’d say Mr. Mike brought some of the fun with him. LOL!


Yup! He pretty much had us in stitches.


But then we had to get down to “serious” business and start decorating and building our homes.

Our BFF’s busy decorating.

Here are their finished houses. I didn’t want to post them on the original post and get everyone confused. But they are definitely worth showing.

Everyone was very hard at work. Even Stormie! She made it her job to recycle the cardboard boxes.  Good girl!

But in the end a fun time was had by all and we proudly displayed our houses. Can you spot your favorite and who built it?


Well I’m proud to say that my daughter FINALLY won a competition and she was EXTREMELY happy about it. Way to go precious!


I’ll leave you with this!
