Our First Annual Gingerbread Competition

Last night Megan & Justin came over for dinner and to partake in a friendly gingerbread competition with Alex & I. It was really fun too. Alex & I actually started at a disadvantage because when we opened our gingerbread house bo we noticed that pieces were broken and somebody had actually bought it, iced pieces of it and returned the damned thing to Target. We were the lucky SECOND owners. I was pretty bummed when we realized this. Either way, Alex & I decided to make the best damn gingerbread house in all the land.
And I think we did pretty good too. I mean, when was the last time you saw a gingerbread house with a drawbridge? ;)
I think next year the four of us or just going to get pre-built ones so we can focus on just decorating. Luckily, Megan brought some extra candy for us to decorate with. That made it even more fun!

After we finished our gingerbread houses, we watched Christmas episodes of Family Guy and played Cards Against Humanity. All in all, it was a very good night filled with friends and holiday festivities.

When was the last time you built a gingerbread house? Was it from scratch, from the store or pre-built? Let me know in the comments below so we can discuss!


  1. I have never, not once, built a gingerbread house. Yours turned out GREAT!!

    1. I think I've built them maybe a handful of times. It's really fun too. Thanks, Terri!
