Gingerbread

Forest of icing

Opal and Agathe went off to find more indoor entertainment…Habitat for Humanity runs a Gingerbread house-making contest and fund-raiser every year, the girls have gone off to inspect the entries.

Cats here, cats there, cats and kittens everywhere

Different companies make elaborate gingerbread habitats, and you can vote on your favourite one. The girls were not allowed to climb around in the gingerbread, nor alas, taste it.

…but they both liked this Mexican village with its numerous felines!

…another cat-themed gingerbread house was a little more worrying…

Opal would like to have gotten a little closer to the gingerbread shipwreck (and its pirate chest of gold!)

…This was probably their favourite Gingerbread house – the back wall is open, so you can see tiny gingerbread furniture and books inside (unfortunately too dark to photograph).  There is even a little garden outside!

…but everything was so delicious-looking it was hard to decide!!

  1. “…it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.” The Wiregrass Hitties are perfectly comfortable around gingerbread. Opal and Agathe certainly have a wealth of indoor entertainment to choose from – whatever next?! (Thank you! Delightful as usual!)

  2. You have well-versed Hittys in regards to some current cultural/world events. Reading about the Quimpers is like a correspondence course for Hittys! Thanks for the current fun.

  3. Your Hittys certainly never lack for things to do or things to see, or things to listen to! They are growing up in a wonderful household!

  4. We really enjoyed this foray by the girls. Of course the kittens/cats house was the favorite of the Country Hittys. Such a clever and delightful fund raising event!! Thank you for a wonderful outing.
