Get your engines ready!

Gingerbread house competition. Sound fun? I thought so. Enough to make it a double-date occasion! It turned out to be one of the most fun activities I have ever done. B-fleck and I brought our dates, Tim and Eric respectively, and let our creative juices flow within our pairs as long as they related to the themes that we drew out of a bowl. Ours was beach. Theirs was valentine. How much easier could you get? We had to race to the store to buy our edible products and make sure that they fit within our $10 budget limit. Then, the gloves came off and the mess began! 













It was so fun, not to mention so cute to see the boys coming up with their own little details. Eric thought it'd be a good idea to add a treasure chest and volleyball net to our beach bungalow escape. In full, it made the entire house! Good call Geisse. Oh, and our competitors did an amazing job. When our time limit was up, we had neighbors come over and judge the finished products. Both teams got Jamba Juice giftcards as a prize. Thanks Fleckensteins for hosting such a fun night!
