It's Time to PARTY!

Only the best kind of party....EVER!

Then we had a TIMED gingerbread building contest.
This was really a lot of fun. I would totally recommend it.
We gave everyone 20 minutes to do their thing. Everyone came with their own structure and then went to. How cool is mine? (It's the Eiffel Tower) Only thing...dang hard to do much decorating with so many windows. Needless to say...Hutchings didn't take home the crown!

The winner is:
The ark!!
That little thing second to the left.
It's cooler than it appears.

Like our village?

One of our more adventurous white elephant gifts. Jake actually got stuck with our own white elephant-a bottle of Chardonnay and a bag of coffee!

Looks like fun. We have never tried a timed gingerbread contest ( I always am up WAYYYYY too long finishing mine) so maybe that would be a good idea.

What ingrediants did you guys use? DId you build it with wood first? And glue or just used frosting for glue?

By the way, you are one HOT mamma Jewkes. You look great! Love the bangs. Way to try something new:)
