We Need Your Votes!

Last night we hosted the 1st Annual G/L Gingerbread House Decorating Competition
We need your help deciding on the winning house. Please leave a comment with your preference by December 24th. Here is the list of official rules:

  1. Gingerbread house must be built prior to competition. Not decorated...
  2. All items in the kit must be used.
  3. Each family is to provide one quart ziplock bag of dry food items from their pantry for the other family to use. Items must be edible.  
  4. Each family can bring one quart size bag of items to add to their house (must be edible). You may also provide up to 2 cups additional frosting in Christmas appropriate colors.
  5. One hour to complete.
  6. Each person in the family must contribute.
  7. No pyro technics, electronics, smoke generators (for James), dancing girls, live animals, insects or other hazardous materials...
  8. Visiting family should bring any special cookie cutters, rolling pins etc...

Each family started with this kit from Sam's Club (shout out!).
Option A: Christmas Zoo
Option A: Side View
Option A: Side View

Option B: O Holy Night Before Christmas
Option B: Side View
Option B: Side View
Both families had so much fun trying to decide what to make the other family use on their house and it was equally as fun trying to incorporate those items into our themes. Can't wait to do this again next year because we know which family plays dirty. We look forward to seeing who you choose as the winner. Thanks in advance!

Oh my gosh Sandi. How fun!! They are both awesome. I don't know how to choose. Although, the sheep with the marshmallows are pretty awesome.
