A walk down gingerbread lane

Another one of our favorite Christmas outings each year, is to visit to the Ballantyne Hotel and tour their AMAZING gingerbread house exhibit.
 Each "house" in incredibly unique, special and amazingly creative.  This year (in my opinion) was probably one of their BEST displays yet! The houses were AWESOME and the detail and handiwork put into each one was mouth dropping. 
The kids absolutely loved walking through the display and then had a BLAST picking out their very favorite entry.
 Of course the "sweetest" part of the night was spending time with family...especially COUSINS!
Yup...cousins are the BEST!
 After a walk through Gingerbread Lane, we took a little time to tour the hotel and admire all the beautiful Christmas decorations.
 And, of course, our visit wouldn't be complete with out a quick stop by the fountain to make a few Christmas wishes.
Dinner at Wendy's and frosty's for dessert always make THIS Christmas outing complete! 
Family, Frosty's and FUN...who could as for anything MORE;)

So super sweet! You know I have YET to make it to tour the Gingerbread House display @ the Ballantyne Hotel, but I always enjoy your blog post about it each year :-)
What amazing creativity! Super cute pics of all the kids, too! The ones of B & AK holding hands are precious!
