Gingerbread Houses

Many Christmas' our daughter and I made a gingerbread house just for the thrill of seeing what new architectural marvel we can create. She has her own family now but I still love the taste of gingerbread so I usually create something each year.

Calder's Ski Chalet - 2000

Updated: 12/28/04

The ski area was very crowded over the holidays, so you'll have to look closely. Those are skis and snowboards stacked in the foreground. It's after 9 a.m. so the little gingerbread men have decided that it's time for a brew. Those that have already slaked their thirst are trying to use the rope tow on the right. Lots of them seem to be falling and will probably decide to head back to the lodge to steady their nerves.
