Kendal loved all the gingerbread men that decorated the building, inside and out. She wanted to pull off their little googley eyes.
Here is Kelsey's gingerbread house. She was so happy to make it and so happy to see it at the auction. Matt placed his bid and he was the winner. Kelsey wanted hers back pretty badly, so she was so happy that it got to come to our house.
Some of the houses, well, all of the houses were amazing. This picture below is a picture of the gingerbread house that won 'Best of Show.' It was gorgeous, inside and outside. If you peeked in one of the windows, you could see a stone fireplace with a glowing fire, furniture, decorations on the wall, chair rail, a beautiful Christmas Tree, and even Santa was there. The details were amazing. There are rules for this auction, and I am not sure what they are, but I know that everything must be edible. So that totally kills the hot glue that the Cranes use to put theirs together!
Just a few more pictures of some of the ones I liked. There were too many to take pictures of all of them, even though my mother in law would love to see every single one.
After we saw the gingerbread houses, Matt and Kelsey headed south to Salina to go work cows. Kendal and I stuck around Swiss Christmas for awhile and shopped a little. I bought the coolest Christmas present for my brother and sister in law, but I can't tell because she sometimes reads this. So cute though.
