Grove Park Inn Gingerbread Houses 2010

Back in December, we made our yearly trip to the Grove Park Inn to visit the gingerbread houses. The talent that these artists have is unbelievable. But this year we had a special treat. Ethan's first grade class made a gingerbread aquarium that placed in the top 10 of elementary aged students. He was absolutely proud of their creation.
Oh the anticipation! We are such mean parents to make them wait.
Here he is in front of his class gingerbread house and their ribbon.

Each student decorated their very own little critter and their own little tile.
Ethan was telling us all about it.
There were so many creative gingerbread houses. I always have so much fun trying to guess what ingredient they use for different things.
This particular gingerbread was the grand prize winner. They were nesting eggs that you would never know are edible.
This is Ethan's favorite.
Ruby loved Noah's arc but was too pouty to take a picture with it.

Seriously, this one looks beautiful enough to have as a permanent decoration…

One of the best ways to pass time and stay warm on a snow day.




Snow Days 2010

A little blog catch up time. Here is one of our first real snow falls of the season.
Roberts Family Teamwork. This is such a rare sight.
Ruby worked really hard for this bit of snow.
Here she is hamming it up for the camera.
Ethan having a great time.
