Since my family and I loved the movie UP so much, I decided to recreate the movie out of gingerbread for the Port of Bellingham's annual gingerbread house contest. The title of my creation was 'Up and Away on Christmas Day'.
Figuring out how to elevate the house to make it look like it was floating was a daunting task! Luckily my ever-so-supportive-husband could point me to the right tools and do-dads that I would need from Home Depot. The rest was up to me in replicating the UP house and characters.
As it turns out, I won first place in the Professional division and the coveted People's Choice Award! Thank you Port of Bellingham.
