Monday night we were invited to Connie and Jamie Quinton's house for their annual gingerbread house making contest. They like to use graham crackers with glue guns to make the houses. It is a smart idea because who eats the gingerbread afterwards anyhow? We were in groups according to age, yet age did not matter with this contest at all. We had all kinds from tall and skinny, short and stout, traditional, big..........you name it.
We had Karma & Kevin Beazer and 2 of their kids, Larry & Carolyn Leavitt and 5 of their kids, Quintons with their 6 kids plus a son in law, and of course, us. We all had a great time!
This was the "old" group with an average age of 50+.
The young girls, about 12 years old and very creative! (the far left house)
The older teenagers. Can you tell what they used for the "thatched" roof? Shredded Wheat.
The younger teenagers. (Neal's group) A soon as this group used a sifter with powdered sugar this became my favorite one. It's the detail, like snow!
Who won first you ask? We all were awarded our own special mention so we were all winners!
