Contest time!!!

Ok, so it is time for the gingerbread contest. I know when I had the original idea I wanted to have the houses done by this coming Saturday, but I think I will change that. So here are the "rules" and all that jazz:

Here are the rules:
*Everything must be made out of something edible and held together with frosting. Exceptions-I don't care if your base is not gingerbread and if it is held together with hot glue, but everything else needs to be held together with frosting.
(I just bought a premade base at Wal-Mart for my house this year)

*If you want to team up with someone else to create your house, that is great. Call your kids together and make a plan, design a house and then build it together. Great family times here.

*After you are finished with your house take a picture or two of it- front, back, sides, inside if applicable and then send the picture to me (post it on your blog if you want) I will then post all of the pictures on my blog and we will all vote on them.

*If you have friends that you think would enjoy this, invite them because the more the merrier I always say.

*Pictures of house need to be sent to me by Friday December 10

*Voting will be December 11-15

I just want to say I think you are awesome and so giving. I have great admiration for you how you handle your unlivible situation. I am a wimp and can't handle a lot, guess the Lord knows us all but still I want you to know you are special daughter not of only your Dad and Mother but great and loving heavenly parents whom will someday put their arms around you and a jeweled crown on your head. Love you, Eloise

This is awesome! But I won't be participating. It's outside my ability to see the joy in this activity. But, I LOVE seeing other people's results. :)

So the fun for me this year was getting those little premade houses at WalMart, putting the grandbabies in aprons, smearing the houses with icing and giving the babies a plate full of sprinkles and stuff and letting them load the houses with whatever they wanted.

Pictures coming.
