We had a blast and look forward to next year’s competition.¬†Comments have been made that the other team has already started planning next year’s entry! At least Mr. and I have 12 months to prepare!!

Y’all have a great week! Later gators!

Display the Hippo!

The voting for our Gingerbread Competition is in full swing! At this time, “Christmas Beach House” (entry #1) is in the lead 13 to 4. I love that everyone is joining in on our fun. I also love the trophy that the winners have to….I mean, get to display in their living room¬†until next years competition!

Mr. and I found the quirkiest Christmas ornament (the hippo) and glued it to the top of a stocking holder. I added some gold letters and¬†viola…the Hippo Award was born! Mr. and I think it’s pretty awesome, if we say so ourselves.¬†ūüôā

You still can join in on the fun and cast your vote. Just leave me a comment over on this post of your favorite entry.

Do you have anything displayed in your living room that really doesn’t go with your decor? Like a Hippo Award?!
