Visions of Sugarplums

My husband makes a new gingerbread house every year. (He doesn't like to cook any other time). Last year he entered his in a contest and won first place. This year he entered his in the same contest...and won first place! I think next year they'll ask us not to come back! Here he is with his entry and ribbon . The other shot of the room shows another of his houses (The pagoda) as they asked him to bring his past years creations to display. Ok, this is a man obsessed!But he won and we are proud of him.

Wow! It's delightful! His house sparks the childish imagination of a wintery and sweet Christmas wonderland in my mind. Kudos to your dear hubby.
