Please vote on which Gingerbread house is your favorite. We are taking this very seriously… we spent 5 hours yesterday on these beautiful houses and need your help to figure out who won the competition. Each team was given $20, 20 minutes at Walmart to choose their candy and as long as they needed to complete their house.
Each team titled their home and was allowed 50 words for the description of their masterpiece.
Bring your beach umbrella!
Crazy I know,
Sand between your… toes
Waves crashing on the shore,
Don’t forget your life preservor.
Dare call me a liar,
Everyone’s invited to our bonfire!
Christmas season is a time for fun,
So get some sun and go for a run!
Welcome to Whoville the Grinch stole Christmas! Catch a glimpse of the sneaky stinky grinch slinking down a Who chimney to snatch their presents… While max sits outside in the back near the Grinch’s dump waiting with the gifts and Santa sacks. Oh you mean Mr. Grinch… Stink, stank, stunk!
C. 126 Snowman Army
Once upon a time there was a house stuffed to the brim with candy. Everyone wanted to steal the candy and so the snowman army was created to protect the treasure. There were 126 snowmen, 1 tank and a high security alarm system to protect the sugar filled house. No one would be able to get through all of that to steal the candy.
D. Hansel and Gretl
Long ago in the depths of the Bavarian Black Forest two children, disowned by their family, wander lost and starving through the darkness. Stumbling upon a cottage made of ginger and candy, they suppose that their luck has finally changed. Waiting in the shadows the wretched hag plots the children’s demise. Hansel and Gretl barely escape with their lives.
A! Love the part about running :)
Love A (escape) for its originality. D comes in a close second for being so cute!
A. Escape. for sure!! so adorable!
I have to go with escape if only because I really wish I was somewhere warm instead of freezing in the snow. But I like them all, super cute and an awesome fun family idea!!
a. but i do live in florida so i am automatically drawn to anything with a beach ;)
My favorite is the Escape!!
Great effort from all, I definitely go with A!
A. Hands down.
I think all of them are great (and I particularly love C and D because they remind me of the awesomely epic Dragon’s Revenge gingerbread house from a year or two ago), but I have to cast my vote for A). Escape. The surfboards and Teddy Grahams in inner tubes did it. :)
They all look awesome, but I have to go with A for the win! :)
B is my favorite. Artsy!
First of all, you are all winners for having such awesome family fun… Bu I gotta vota A as well.

Shay @ Whine Less, Breathe More
Wow, this is hard! They are all so good…
I really like B for the classic gingerbread house look, but I have to say A gets my vote. Love the creativity, the twist, the beach and the writing!
Snowmen army! It’s Doomsday undertones and maniacal snowmen have stolen my heart.
Next year, can you make a high-rise condo gingerbread house with swimming pool, hot tub, and tennis court?
This all looks so very fun! Have to go for “A – Escape” for the win!
I vote for A for sure; the snowman one definitely made me laugh though, and I really like the witch outside of the hansel and gretl one with the pot.
#1 for me is A–Escape. I’m loving the little details I keep finding! A close second is D!
C. The Snowman Army. So creative!
P.S. They are all so good, I really wanted to vote for them all!
