Gingerbread Walk 2013

We’ve been to downtown Belleville twice now this season to look at the gingerbread houses…once at night, and once during the day, when we could some of them a little bit better. I’m always amazed by how creative and talented people are with gingerbread, frosting, and candies. One of these years, I’d like to enter, but then again, I know my abilities with gingerbread, and it doesn’t come close to any of these!

The Hobbit Home was the overwhelming family favorite. The details were amazing.

As amazing as that one is, it didn’t even win “Best in Show!” That award went to this very cool Bedrock creation:

This penguin one was also popular. I think we all had to do a double-take to realize it’s a surf shop!

This tree was also a favorite…we loved all of the animals!

Two different Nutcracker-themed creations!

You can tell which ones were submitted by the Girl Scouts…they usually have a camping them!

The details on this bistro were charming:

Another very detailed tree:

I always like the Belleville-themed ones a lot.

The Gingerbread Walk has become one of my favorite things to look forward to every year at Christmastime!
