Family Gingerbread House Contest Dec. 2014

For the last several years, our family (kids & spouses) has had a Gingerbread House contest during the Christmas season. This year’s is a bit late, since we didn’t get together with the kids until the week after Christmas, at Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. (We had all the kids for Thanksgiving, so the Dufrene’s got Dave & Ashley & Abigail for Christmas, an arrangement we are happy with — and we love the Dufrene’s as in-laws; couldn’t ask for better!)

But anyway, even if it’s late, there is a lot of family pride on the line here! So look at the “official” pictures below, and vote via the poll at the end. Thanks for joining us for the contest, and Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all of our dear friends!
