Gingerbread House Competition

It’s that time again, our annual Johnson Gingerbread Contest.  Whether it’s houses, trains, chapels, ski lodges…we go to town with gingerbread, frosting, and candy.  Last year’s competition was our first, and this year it was taken to new levels of awesomeness!  Below I’ll show photos of each house along with some detail shots.  Your job is to vote for your favorite.  We’d also love it if you leave comments on why you picked the one you did.  Mainly so we can rub it in each others’ faces 😉
