Each year, Peddler's Village in Lahaska, PA holds a gingerbread house competition.
What made this year's extra-special was that my daughter Laura created a house to enter!
I'm sharing my photos so that you can get an up-close-and-personal look at her creative talent!
The big moment of checking in her house.
Believe me - we drove there very carefully!
The houses are displayed in the Village's lovely gazebo,
which they close in for the winter.
There it is, entry #22 in the traditional category.
You can bet I'm so very proud of her!
A week later, we came back to see the results.
Notice the long line to get into the gazebo! A very popular attraction!
Laura's house won an Honorable Mention!
It was such a great experience for her.
She designed the house, sketched it out, then made it a reality!
She had so much fun pulling it together!
The Gingerbread House display will be open until 1-3-15.
(I have the feeling she'll be back next year with another entry.)
