  1. Those are amazing! How in the world did she keep that first one from toppling over! It’s awesome!

  2. Thought I would share this with ya for next year…


    (Its in Utah.–I thought I remember reading thats where you are from) My Mom is the executive over it, and all the proceeds go BSA and PTA. Anyhoo.. We have been a few times, and its great.

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog. I had a lot of fun making the house with my daughter. We will be doing this again next year. I enjoyed looking at all the other houses.

  4. These houses are great! My friend built a huge gingerbread house this year and donated it to our kids school. The class with the most nights of reading won it to eat. It was amazing hearing all the ooos and ahhhhs from the kids when they saw the house wheeled into the gym! My friend is very shy but you could see the pride on her face as the kids cheered! I felt very proud for her!
