Just because you have done something for the last several years...does it have to become a tradition?
One of the fancy resorts nearby has a Gingerbread House Contest every year! The contest runs during the month of December with the winners being chosen sometime before Christmas Eve. The last few Christmas Eve's, after our Christmas Eve church service, we have driven by to see the houses and the winners.
This year, we had not planned on stopping by.
"But, we have to do that! It's a tradition!" were the words coming out of Jonathan's mouth. Then everyone announced that he was right and we were going. Funny...I did not know it had become a tradition.
Here are some of our favorites!
Sweet and simple!
The gingerbread house that I would love to visit!
Santa's after Christmas retreat!
There were so many fabulous Gingerbread houses in the Amateur and Professional Division.
We notice every year that the Amateurs do a much better job!
I guess this has officially become a tradition around these parts. Maybe one day we will try our hand at Gingerbread house making and enter the contest ourselves!
Don't you just love these?
