Gingerbread Lane

I think we may have started a new tradition this year.  I know I'm posting way too many pics, but I just can't help it.  We decided we should have a gingerbread competition...and everyone brought their "A" game :)

I took the advice of a facebook friend and used hotglue to put the houses together.  It made things SO much easier!!  We were able to focus on just the decorating and not trying to get those dang houses to stay together :)

I love how serious everyone is in all these pics.  




Gracie and Wesleigh did alot of this!

Wesleigh and I worked together on our house.


 Of course, we weren't all business!!





Bryce's finished product.


The back of Bryce's featured a gingerbread man who fell off the roof putting up his Christmas lights :)

Gracie's house

Alexandra's house

Mine and Wesleigh's house


Karleigh couldn't come earlier in the day, so she and Braden did their houses that evening.

Braden's house (his mama helped a bit :)

So...which house is the winner??  I love them all!!

We had so much fun, I already can't wait till next year!

Love, love, love this idea! I stumbled upon your blog from Jenny at Beyond our Wildest Dreams and have loved reading about your family. We have three boys and I would love to adopt someday as well. Seeing all of the fun activities and memories you make with your older boys makes me look forward to the teenage years with mine. Merry Christmas!
