The Great Gingerbread House Contest 2007

Yet another contest is in full swing at the hospital I work for. Last year we swept the "Decorate A Mini Christmas Tree Contest" with are replica of Rockefeller Center in NYC. Then we moved into victory with the "Paint A Halloween Pumpkin Contest" with our Cinderella Coach pumpkin. Now a whole new challenge is upon us with a "Decorate A Gingerbread House Contest". This time our team leader is the soon to be famous Marsh BonTempo (seen with her masterpiece design Reindeer Ski Resort). Supplied with a generic pre made gingerbread house Marsha skillfully began to slap a shapeless blog of frosting and cookies together and came out with a resort. The resort is a gingerbread Christmas wonderland with a snow frosted mountain for skiing, a steaming hot tub for the vacationing reindeer, dazzling and sparkling Christmas trees and a toasty Pez fireplace to keep you warm on those chilly nights. Rumor has it that the likes of famous cookies such as Shrek's very own Gingie and the singing Chips Ahoy, along with the Keebler Elves and even Hansel and Gretel have vacationed at this chilly hot spot. Lets give a hand to the talented Marsha and let's see how the cookie crumbles for this contest!!! UPDATE 12-21-2007 : WE WON 1st PLACE!!!!!

Hi Rick,

Just popped over although it is only the 19th (I'm expecting things to become a little hectic in our house over the next few days) to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a fantastic Christmas and a happy and healthy 2008.
:)

We're doing gingerbread houses right now ourselves. Nothing fancy this year though (two years ago we won the local contest.) I figure I'll be scraping royal icing off the ceiling until February!

Have a great holiday!
