Gingerbread Housing

The second part of my Thanksgiving day was at the North's home. Michelle's family was having a gingerbread house making contest and her husband was out of town, so she was left without a partner. She invited me to come and we had a blast! I had never made one before, but I guess we caught on quick because we came in 2nd place! Ryan was invited too, but he and Jonathan played video games instead. We are so blessed to have so many friends that we could share Thanksgiving day with!

Here are the beginning stages of our masterpiece. It was a bit messy!
Here are all the houses lined up for us to vote on. I think there were 10 total.
Tada! The finished product! Notice the Xmas lights around the roof. That was Michelle's creative idea.
And here we are gloating with our 2nd prize winner. Notice Cooper, the baby bump on Michelle, he will be debuting in February. Yet another baby for me to love on!

Very impressive for your first time!!! How fun! I hope you & Ryan are feeling better! It gets worse when you have kiddos, just more people to get sick & give it back to you all over again! Congrats to all your friends. . . What did you think of Four Feathers? I can't wait to see pictures of your tree! Don't you just love this season!!!? Love & miss you! Wendy.
