Gingerbread House Party

Last night was another incaranation of gingerbread house creations. It's been 2 years since we did this, and the creations this year are very different. This is mostly owing to the fact that I couldn't be bothered to spend hours on end baking gingerbread and we made the houses out of graham crackers instead. Everyone was very creative. Here is the play by play:

Jules made a School, complete with a bell up in the tower.

Nathan & Jeremy colaborated on a clock tower kind of creation that evolved a little along the way. In the end they passed off the decorating to Jenny, who added a clock face, a garden roof (ala the conference center in SLC), and a zen garden in front.

Nick opted for a victorian masterpiece, complete with rounded windows. He had to leave early so his didn't make it to the stages of perfection it may have otherwise, and then met it's demise upon arriving home thanks to a patch of ice. But it was beautiful while it lasted.

My house was the most boring of them, but I am a huge fan of the chiclet tiled roof. I feel like that was my stroke of genius for the year.

Ben went for a California theme with his malibu beach house. Complete with a taffy palm tree, crushed peppermint and graham cracker flagstone patio. . . This wins the award for graham cracker originality.

And all the while, Tanner feasted on the candy. He was probably up all night.
