    Wow Terry, great pictures. Makes it look like you were there for quite a long time.

    Actually we were only at the GF for 5 nights John, but they started building the house on our second day so we were able to monitor the progress.

    That's really cool, Terry!

    Interesting that they start with a complete house and the gingerbread all appears to be a facade on the outside.

    Looks delicious!

    That was one of my illusions shattered Tom.
    Until I saw it, I was under the impression that it was entirely made of edible materials.

    Weren't they plastic moldings that just bolted together? That's what they appeared to be in your pictures. Or does Florida now have plastic eating termites?

    Tom (... plastic gingerbread? Naw.)

    You may well be correct Tom.
    To be honest I never inspected them closely.
