The Gingerbread House Contest!!

Every year at Christmas time, Peddlers Village, Pa.
has a Gingerbread Competition and display in the gazebo
on the grounds of their shopping village!
I'll share "some" of my favorites here and I want all of you to
pick a favorite as well!!
They are numbered, for ease of voting!!
















They are non-traditional ginger breads, your entry does not have to be a house.
They are fun, colorful and oh so creative.
#15 is Rapunzel, not someone "puking" from the tower,
as the hubs thought (insert smile)!!
The first six were my favorites but if I am to be honest,
I LOVED all of the ones I photographed!

Road Trip

The hubs and I hit the road this past weekend...
out and about in our four wheel drive sled...
Find fun and work on the Winter Bucket List!!
 And that we did!!


I'm not sure I have ever seen this many lights!
ooohhhh wait, I have, last year when we were here!
But just like viewing Christmas Lights, this place never gets old,
and never disappoints!
They had a Gingerbread House contest...
I'll share that with you tomorrow and you can pick your favorite!
So, how about you guys, do you still have things to cross off your
"must do/visit/see" Winter Bucket List List?!

Christmas Lights

Every year, since the boys were little,
we would set aside one night of the Christmas Season
to drive around town,
and look at all the "Christmas Lights"!!
The hubs and I still go each Christmas Season,
 I always thought we enjoyed it more then the boys did.
So grab a cup of hot coco and a warm blanket
and you can ride along with us!!
Our town has a contest, this house won first place!

This house was on the same street and I liked it better!
 This house won second place,

 it was really beautiful!

 This house was next door and I thought it was lovely as well,
you have to enter the contest to place and
I am assuming they did not enter!

 Such a beautiful home as well, I really liked these colorful light!
This display was in the front of those last two homes... 

a cute couple ice skating, with their little ones. 

 A horse and carriage, I really liked these pretty clear lights.

 This house was extremely festive, do you see Santa in the front window?!

 This house won third place, it was very pretty.

The hubs stayed in the car eating cupcakes,
as I ran around taking pictures.
He was prepared to take off without me, if I got caught!
What in the world is he thinking, my bail money is in the glove box.

The Christmas Carousal

This year, our favorite little seaside community, Pier Village
had the most festive holiday display!
My favorite part...The Christmas Carousal...
It looked a little older, the horses had some worn edges,
there were lot's of scuffs and scrapes, where little ones had come and gone.
The Carousal had so much charm,
it had clearly hosted some very happy riders!
Today was no different...let me show you...

December 21, 2013, a fun and festive day!!
