So what happens when you get a family of home builders together in a spirited gingerbread house making contest?? .....
Uh... things get crazy ya'll! Power tools start flying, beer starts flowing, and this friendly little competition becomes an all out war. I kid you not, my husband went out to his truck to grab his framing square, tape measurer, and various tools, and started laying out a floorplan. He then started rolling out the dough, building the walls, and calculating the roof cut in.
All in all there were about 4 days involved in the building competition and our house turned out absolutely AWESOME! I was in charge of "decorating"... the house is complete with stucco walls with stacked stone belly band, a full round turret with metal seamed roof, decorative keystones, composition roof, beam columns, and to top it off a cute little chandelier in the entry way... yah you could say we went a bit overboard but what the hey!
