A healthy competition: Gingerbread House

For the past few years, I have politely begged asked, to be a part of the Graham family Gingerbread competition.

Shelly and Scott assemble all of the gingerbread houses, and provide all of the candy, and then we are each responsible for bringing our own roofing, and then one item to share with the rest of the group

We all had a 2 hour time limit with 2 person teams

As Jaci and I were focused on completing our house, Shelly was having a photo shoot with Truitt, her grandson
{it was only after she claimed to have gotten the BEST picture ever that she realized it was on my camera and not hers! whoops!}
Our finished product

The competition was judged by a unbiased Pizza Delivery Driver
The Graham's bribed him with an extra tip, however it was their way of paying it forward
and he was beyond thankful and touched for the additional tip!
And the winner was Lauren and Greg's cottage
Their traditional gingerbread house was done with perfection
{well minus the use of broccoli for their trees - but who's judging??}
This was such a fun way to spend a Saturday night with amazing friends!

Holy toppings!!! Such a great festive idea! Love that the pizza delivery man was the judge--probably the best way to having the judging be unbiased, haha!
