Festival of Trees

Here are some of the sights from the Providence Festival of Trees where we entered a Gingerbread house in a competition.

Think trees, lots and lots of trees ;)

There were red ones and blue ones,
black ones and green ones.
Big ones and small ones and even some Seuss ones.

Marzipan mice around a tree, all of them seem to really be focused on peppermint on top, I mean realllllllllly focused.

This tree and layout had a Japanese theme, it was a little over the top for me-I probably would have just done the cranes and lights and left everything else off but this was a competition after all.

Here's more of this layout.

Someone has a sense of humor.
The other bears are enjoying the picnic.

Something for all of those Twilight fans.
The tree is actually black.

I love that a lot of these trees didn't have a traditional tree toppers on them. I especially like the use of the branches on this one.

Here's some more of our Gingerbread competition. This one actually had cupcakes in the oven-soooooooo cute.

Bubblegum for the flooring.

This tree had ornaments made from Legos!

Here's another Gingerbread layout.

Here's a front view of our house.

"Up on the roof top..."

Um, Houston we have a problem.

One of the busier trees at the Festival.
The pinwheel things kept making me think of the hypnotizing swirly things you see in old movies.

and then I saw this one...

Very, very busy tree.
Verrrrrrrrryyyyyy, verrrrryyyyy busy.

A little interior kitchen action.

This is beyond cool. All I can say is "WOW".

and here's video of the reason I think it's sooooo cool...besides the black and white bare branch thing going on here.

Some of Santa's helpers?
Or could it be two members of our Gingerbread decorating team.

"but I heard them exclaim, 'ere they drove out of sight, "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!" "Clement Clarke Moore

If I had the space, I would so have this at home.
