Gingerbread! Part 2

But wait, we had one more gingerbread project! 

Zorg and Leena made this museum.

From left to right on the wall, they made a mosaic, an Egyptian sarcophagus (dipped in chocolate, the best kind!) , several mounted specimens of gummy bears, fish and sharks, and a set of fully toothed megalodon jaws surrounded by sharks.

On the floor we have a copy of Rodin's The Thinker, the Hope Diamond, a meteorite, and some interesting mineral specimens.
 At the party we had nine houses to be judged, our best turnout yet!

Choclo got an Honorable Mention, and Klenda took second in the Individual category.  Zorg and Leena's museum and our castle tied for second in the Family category.  

First Individual was the treehouse on the bottom left of the picture above.  Very impressive!  Tree houses are hard!

First in the family category was a lovely church with the best stained glass windows I have ever seen (in gingerbread!).  That's it in the front right of the picture on the right.

The party was so fun, and it was so great to see all of our friends!  I'm sure we'll do it again next year!

 And, of course, after the party...

Congratulations on your gingerbread achievements! What a lot of fun you must have had making the various creations. They are all so impressive. Did you eat many of the building materials as you constructed them? It seems a shame to eat the finished houses etc but I suppose you still have the photos to enjoy over and over again! What a great post. I enjoyed it!

Thanks, Sue! Yes, we had a lot of fun and nibbling during building!

Most of the kids save the houses to bring to different Christmas parties to smash and share them with friends.
