“Candy Land” – The Gingerbread House

It’s December at the Mount and that means it’s time for my companies annual Gingerbread house competition!  My girls have been  hard at work designing and building this years version of everyone’s favorite childhood game Candy Land.

Just to set the record straight, the category my girls are entered in is the Chef Assisted.  Now to many people that means the students hand the chef the pieces and he or she artfully puts it together.   That’s not the case at the Mount.   My girls designed it, made all of the gingerbread, and built entirely on their own, without even asking me for any help.   Normally I have to get them a ruler or paper, but this year they came prepared…sigh   My girls have grown up.

I would also like to mention that they will be defending their two time champion status with this years entry.   We’re looking for a Three-Peat!

I hope you enjoy their creation  Candy – Land!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed your tour of Candy Land.   We won’t know if we won until Late January, but I’ll be sure to let you all know how my girls did.  I’m so very proud of them, that they’re already winners in my eyes!
