G is for . . .

Gingerbread House. Every year, the Annual National Gingerbread House Competition is held at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C. Hundred's of entries are on display from Thanksgiving through New Year's.

Luckily, my parents live in the Asheville area and since we fly there for Christmas, I get to see this contest in person. My kids love it. Sometimes the best entries aren't even houses. This past year the grand prize winner was a gingerbread sculpture of a cuddly, black and white twosome. Go here for a picture, or here, for the YouTube video.

Yep, baby Giant Pandas! Another G-word. How cute is that? Have you ever made a gingerbread house? Ever eat one?

  4. I've never made a gingerbread house, but I've always wanted to eat one. It would seem like such a shame though after all the work put into it.

    Now following your blog. You're getting closer to your first 100!

  6. When I was growing up we never made them. (I don't know why not.) Now that I have a little girl, it's become a mother/daughter tradition. So much fun! Thanks for the reminder. :D

I will do everything in my power to visit commenter's blogs unless I've been abducted by aliens or my children get sick. (If my children get abducted by aliens, I will be very busy, of course, catching up on my sleep.)

Note: During the A to Z challenge, I may not be able to return all comments in a timely fashion, but I will do my best.
