Gingerbread House Display

Dear Friends,
        We took a little field trip today to celebrate the first day of Christmas vacation.  The Ballantyne Resort in Charlotte hosts a gingerbread house competition each year so we decided to check it out.  It doesn’t cost a thing but you can vote for your favorites by donating $1.   It was particularly fitting this year, since Lacey made her first “real” gingerbread house at school last week.  There were professional and amateur categories.

back of the yellow house -yep, that is Santa in the hot tub

Amazing, huh?  I liked all of them really.  The details are unreal if you look closely.  We will definitely be going back next year.  

Any gingerbread house fanatics out there?  I’ve never done a fancy pants one before but it sure is tempting after looking at all those houses.  Maybe one year we’ll do a big one as a family project.  Not any time soon though!



  1. These are amazing! I’m no cook but I appreciate the time and effort involved in creating something like this! My favourite has to be Santa in the hot tub …. who knew??? Merry, merry…lol x

  2. Erin,
    Thanks so much for blogging about Gingerbread Lane! We were so impressed with the entries this year. Merry Christmas, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
