I can cross one more project off my list. This Friday was my Third Annual Gingerbread House Making Contest. Once again I failed at preparing ahead of time, so we used graham crackers again. I rented a hall with the help of my sister in law and we had a record number of people; 17 to be exact. The invitations went out only a week before and the day of the party we had a winter storm so I was very delighted with the turn out. I put paper down on the floor and when people came in they took off their shoes. My sister in law called her husband and friends ahead of time and so they brought slippers. We played Christmas music and had hot chocolate to sip and chex mix to munch on.
I think each year the houses get more and more creative. You can see we had some daring structures regarding height, and some creative structures with theme. Check the photoset to see the houses better here.
Next year I think I will send out postcard invitations and hope for even more attending. I’ll also recommend everyone bringing slippers :)
