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.
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!
