I found some decorating sugar in the pantry, so we allowed that in addition to what came with the houses. I tried to make stained glass windows using the yellow sugar, but was laughing too hard when I outlined the window on the right and the lines got messed up.
Apparently the Grinch tagged one house.
Side views...my team was going for a pretty look, while Sam and Jeff were being, well, Sam and Jeff. A shark was circling us the entire time we were decorating, and had already taken a couple of bites before we were able to move the houses to the kitchen. (Shark = my uncle, who loves gingerbread)
So the kits came with the traditional white icing but there was a small tube of yellow icing this year as well. All I can say is don't eat the yellow snow!
We had a sliding problem...
But I think our house was still pretty!
I had a hard time getting anyone to pose for pictures, so I was a little sneaky:
Oh, I'm just taking a picture of the house, nothing more... ;)
This one just cracks me up.
Half of Team Awesome, and the winning house (because we tried, at least). Hey, I'll take whatever victory I can get!
One down...one to go!
