We Need Your Vote

Obviously Billy wasn't too excited to re-inact Lady and The Tramp spaghetti scene but he went along with it anyway.

You know it is a good day when the only two outfits you wear all day are gym clothes and pajamas.

It's even a better day when you are surrounded by frosting, candy, your best friends and oreos.

We need your help though.  My MIL and FIL refuse to choose the best gingerbread house.

Something about we are all special and that we are a little too competitive and we need to remember the true meaning of Christmas blah blah blah.

You have to vote which house you like the best.

If you vote for mine we will automatically be best friends and I will send you your favorite treat in the mail.  JK...you won't know who's is who's until tomorrow.

OPTION A: CHRISTMAS MASSACRE, THE DRAGONS REVENGE

OPTION B:  CANDY HAVEN

OPTION C: PARK CITY PARADISE

Gingerbread Houses-008.jpg

Gingerbread Houses-026.jpg

The choice is up to you.  Our fate lies in your hands.

Please Vote Either A, B or C.  It is kind of a big deal to me.

What are you doing for Christmas Eve?

-Dinner, Christmas Movie, PJ opening (everyone matches, it is awesome), Billy will give me a foot massage and feed me hand-peeled grapes as we watch the movie.

I vote option B (a classic!), although I like the creativity of option A (the bite out of the house) and the skiing bears in option C is very cute.

I think my vote is for b too. Although I love the park city one too.

Option B! So cute! I'm working for my parents on Christmas Eve. They let all of their employees off and my parents, me and my sister work. : )

Oh my gosh, this is so hard! Those are some of the most awesome gingerbread houses I have ever seen!

Okay Option A. The bleeding gingerbread man is hilarious. Option B. The bridge and fishing gingerbread man are so legit. Option C. Seriously, a ski lift? Brilliant!

I'm gonna have to go with C!

WOW they are all so good!!!!!

I'm going to go with Option C! I love oreos and teddy grahams and there is a skill lift! AWESOME :)

Tonight: my family is coming over! We do christmas eve with my family and it's sports themed this year, we don't do traditional christmas ;) it's usually a themed christmas ;)

I love these gingerbread houses!! Y'all are so profesh. I can't vote for the massacre and I have a hunch that's NOT yours. Points for creativity though. Then my instinct was to go with B b/c I LOVE gum drops AND Dots. Like, my 2 favorite childhood candies. Then I saw the Teddy Graham ski lift and realized I was torn between B & C. I can't choose! Please don't make me. ;)

We are going to a big, fun, festive party tonight with Billy's family. Tomorrow we make our rounds to visit everyone in both of our families. And I think I'll wear pajamas the whole time just because I can. :) xo

I have to go with B...although I secretly love A.

We're heading to church with family and then out to pizza :-)

Merry Christmas!!!!!!

I HAVE to say Park City... I LOVE the ski lift, that is so creative!! :D

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:10 AM , OpenID fitchocoholic said...

They are all sooo cute!!!!1 I'll have to go with option B, though because of all the candy!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:11 AM , Blogger Daniel said...

Awesome Post! Mom and Dad love them all and are voting for 'C'. I am voting for 'A' because that seems like my sense of humor. Jamie will be voting when she gets off work. Although Jace has yet to experience candy, he seems to like 'B'. We love you, have a great Christmas Eve.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:11 AM , OpenID runyogarepeat said...

I love B, but C has my vote! I love the chair lift & skiing bears - wish my mountain looked that that.
Cute picture too!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:11 AM , Blogger The Jogger Blogger said...

They are all yummy looking but if I HAD to choose-I would go with B as well:)

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:13 AM , Blogger Slomohusky said...

Merry Christmas!

b. although, c has it's charm.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:15 AM , Blogger Maria said...

So hard to choose, but I think I would go for C. Love the pretzel balcony :)
But they are all fab :)

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:21 AM , Blogger Laura said...

C is so creative! But I think I want to eat B the most, ha. I will be spending most of Christmas Eve in airports. Ick, right? Good thing there's a cute boy waiting at the end of the tunnel...

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:22 AM , Blogger Shannon said...

Likin' B! The bridge is pretty awesome.

Christmas Eve plans, I really have no idea. I think we're supposed to be making gingerbread houses today... with graham crackers, not gingerbread.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:25 AM , OpenID antosdoeslife said...

I love B!

Merry Christmas!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:33 AM , Blogger Mamarunsbarefoot said...

B!!!!!!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:36 AM , Blogger ~Jessica~ said...

Oh Goodness, I hope I don't get this wrong!

I'd have to go for option B because it's so neat and organised. Plus, it's the house I'd most like to live in if I were made out of gingerbread...

My xmas eve is irrelevant - I'm going to live vicariously through yours. And that first pic just about made my day...Billy is such a good sport!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:38 AM , Blogger Shannon said...

B! but c is realllly creative! haha

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:48 AM , Blogger Melissa said...

I thought B was the clear winner...until I saw the teddy graham ski lift. Voting for C!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:51 AM , Blogger Amanda@runninghood said...

Oh, I think I have to go with option A...that is just too funny and creative. out of the box...my kind of thinking! but seriously, your family is so awesome...who does gingerbread houses this cool?!!! Um, your chrismtas eve sounds just like ours...pjs, movie, some kind of dinner (nothing too fancy), and I we are also going to the Christmas eve service at church...candle lighting.
Thank you for your awesome blog Janae. It has been fun to "meet" or find you at the end of this 2010 year. Love your spirit! XO

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:53 AM , Blogger Amanda@runninghood said...

oh my, I can't believe there are not more votes for A! So I'm commenting a second time on behalf of A! Come on people?! It is clearly the most original and unconventional house out of the three! Love it! makes me smile and laugh. one of a kind!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:54 AM , Blogger Rebekah said...

When I first saw the work that went into the licorice sidewalk on B, that was my vote....until I saw C!!! The ski lifts and ski-ing teddies are just too adorable!! C! C! C!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:55 AM , Blogger Big Daddy Diesel said...

Option B

I am working right now, and getting grincher as the day goes on, not sure what tonights plans are

 
At December 24, 2010 at 10:56 AM , Blogger Amanda@runninghood said...

but if I was voting for the most beautiful and charming...it would be a toss up between b and c. But C is amazing and probably the one you did..I mean how cute is that little bear chair lift?! But A...love the bite out of that house. Okay, seriously, I'm done stalking your gingerbread houses.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:02 AM , Blogger Holly said...

I would have to say B or C.....I am going to go for B!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:05 AM , Blogger Mary Beth said...

Love them all but gotta go with C. How can you resist bubble gum skis and tiny bears?? Oh and the chair lift. Seriously...adorable.

Christmas Eve: workout done, food, food, food, did I mention food? :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:08 AM , Blogger Julie D. said...

Amanda, you are hilarious---this gingerbread voting is very serious to you! :) LOL! I vote B!!!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:09 AM , Blogger Carrie said...

Awwh! I love Lady and the Tramp! Cute :)

C is my fave! I love the wee bear skiiers! However they all look delicious. Admirable restraint that none of them have been bitten!

Today I did a kenpo-boxing workout and now it's off to wrap all my mom's presents. I've been really good this year, so hopefully this gift wrap extravaganza will also involve a Starbucks peppermint mocha. :D

Have a fabulous Christmas Eve!!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:09 AM , Blogger Mallory said...

Option B. I like all the candy! Have a Merry Christmas!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:13 AM , Blogger Maria said...

option B!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:16 AM , OpenID pyaariweedy said...

i'm going with C for creativity

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:18 AM , OpenID therunnersplate said...

Option B. I love all the colors!

I am super competitive as well, so I know how you feel. :)

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:26 AM , Blogger Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

I obviously have to vote for the dragon's revenge, because secretly I'm a six year old boy.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:28 AM , Blogger winstead family said...

i am definitely voting for C..i mean, who in the world could be so creative to make a licorice ski lift!?!?! wow!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:31 AM , Blogger Crafty Jogger said...

Option B!!!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:31 AM , Blogger Kate said...

I love the bridge in B, so cute! A kind of frightens me (haha) and C is just so darn creative that I have to vote for it. I've never seen anything like it.

B wins in Presentation
C wins in Creativity
A wins in Freakiness

:)

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:34 AM , Blogger Anitra said...

A was definitely done by a guy and if I was a guy I would probably vote for that one. B is so perfect and colorful and creative w the ice fishing and fire and cool bridge and probably yours. C is so creative and I love that one too. This is so hard.

I vote for B because that's probably the one I would want to come across and hang out in. I don't like gum drops, but I love Andes mints.

I hope yours wins.

Still last minute shopping today!

Merry Christmas.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:43 AM , Blogger Preston and Jamyn said...

I love the Park City one... but my vote goes to B!!! SO cute! What a fun tradition! Ok now I need your vote Janaester... Hair... blonde or dark for me? I know I can count on you to be honest. :) Take it as a compliment! Loves! PS Have a Merry Christmas in CA!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:45 AM , Blogger Regina said...

They are all great, but I am going to have to pick B. I love the guy fishing and the little campfire.
Merry Christmas!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:46 AM , OpenID scissorscutpaper.com said...

I vote B. Love them all, though.

Tonight we will head to Reflections in the Park to admire the Christmas lights. Our evening will wrap up with the candlelight church service.

Have a wonderful holiday.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:46 AM , Blogger Runnin-From-The-Law said...

Definitely B. Love it!

Sounds like you guys are having a fabulous Christmas week. Yeah for Billy running! Merry Christmas to you!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:46 AM , Blogger Jamie said...

Of course I have to vote "C" due to my love of skiing!! I wish I was on the ski lift with a handful of teddy grahams right now!!! Instead, I am stuck at work while your parents and Dan are out having fun without me. Bah Humbug :(

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:46 AM , Blogger Sweat once a day said...

Option B!!! Always love a classic!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:47 AM , Blogger Rachel Marie said...

WOW! Jason voted immediately for A. The dragon theme is so creative! And of course, the blood strewn crime scene appealed to his forensics side! I love them all, so this is a difficult vote. All the roofing material was wonderful, by the way. The ski lift was too cute! I'm gonna go with B for all the gumdrops (one of my favorite candies!). So one "A" and one "B" from the Sharp's.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 11:57 AM , Blogger Running and living said...

I like them all. I think yours is B:)

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:12 PM , Blogger MuncherCruncher said...

I choose C.
Park City paradise. A ski lift out of candy? are you kidding me? I'd ski every day.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:12 PM , Blogger Matt said...

I vote C!

And amen to gym clothes and PJ's. That is my day right there ;)

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:15 PM , Blogger Nicole said...

I vote B! i love it! :)

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:21 PM , Blogger J said...

I like option B. Lots of good candy! We are off to church soon and then Christmas dinner! I love this time of year. Can't wait for tomorrow because we get presents and we get to watch our nephew open presents AND I get to run outside tomorrow!!!! Merry Christmas!! Have a great night!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:25 PM , Blogger The Turtle said...

B is super cute.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:26 PM , Blogger One Crazy Penguin said...

So hard to pick! C is absolutely adorable, but I love the man fishing in B.....sooooo B it is!

Merry Christmas!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:29 PM , OpenID drkgood said...

I vote for C for its beauty and creativity. B is a classic and so cute. It's a very close second for me. I don't like to see teddy bear blood. That's just mean. Sorry, A. Try again next year.

At December 24, 2010 at 12:30 PM , Blogger Jogging with Fiction said...

Option B! LOve it.

I'm doing a whole lot of nothing on Christmas Eve. This morning I went rollerblading at the beach with a friend, then ran, but now I'm watching trash tv with my husband in my bathrobe.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:33 PM , Blogger Souther Sober Girl Runs said...

B.

DUH!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:36 PM , Blogger Jen said...

I can see why it would be difficult to choose a winner! They're all so creative. Love the ski lift and the dead gingerbread guys. But I vote for #2. Love all the colors! It looks like you're having a great time at the in laws!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:40 PM , Blogger Caroline said...

They are all awesome, but I love B!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:57 PM , Blogger Marisa said...

I love both B and C, but the ski lift is sooo cool! So Option C it is! :)

 
At December 24, 2010 at 12:58 PM , OpenID mealsformiles said...

OMG I love this! We're watching a throwdown with Bobby Flay on the Food Network and it's all about gingerbread houses - I want to make one!! I think I choose B. it looks the most fun. And, not gonna lie, A is a little scary. Merry Xmas eve!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 1:00 PM , Blogger middleagedrunner said...

Oh No! They are all so good. I have to vote for B even though I love the horror presented by A.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 1:15 PM , Blogger Melissa said...

B, definitely. I want to eat it.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 1:19 PM , Blogger Adrienne said...

At December 24, 2010 at 1:44 PM , Blogger Stacie said...

I have to vote for C. The skiing bears won me over :) I like B too. They are all amazing. Great work. Your Christmas Eve plans sound amazing. We are at my Dad's now for dinner/presents and the we will go to Jason's Dad's house tonight for another round. I can't wait to be home tomorrow with my family and enjoy the morning together. No racing around.

I vote C. That is super cute and original with the ski lift. Love it!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 1:56 PM , Blogger marathonbaker said...

They are all mega cute, but I love the creativeness of C. Have a great christmas eve!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 2:10 PM , Blogger Liz said...

While the ski lift in C is cute, I am going with B on this one. Love the little pretzel fence!

B

 
At December 24, 2010 at 2:36 PM , Blogger Julie @ Hotlegs Runner said...

I like B! =)

That's a cute photo of you and Bill =)

I just wanted to let you know that you were strangely in my thoughts when I wrote Part 2 today. Maybe coz you're know as the hungry girl and you'd be the best guest in a Filipino Christmas Eve party! We'll be so happy to feed you =)

 
At December 24, 2010 at 2:52 PM , Blogger Pam said...

I have to go with A. It's just too dang funny. And it reminds me of something my Dad did a few years ago...

My Mom always sets up this really pretty Christmas village thingie on top of their piano. It's a little town with the bank and post office and lots of other buildings, complete with streetlamps and cars and people walking holding hands...

Well, Dad went and bought a bunch of those little green army men and staged them so that it looked like the village was under seige--a sniper on the roof of the bank, the couple holding hands was laying on their back with a soldier with his bayonette standing over them about to stab them...

It was CLASSIC!!!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 3:29 PM , Blogger Blue said...

Without Question, the reason your inlaws couldn't vote was because your B house was so completely superior to the A and C offerings, that there is a danger of permanent familial rift if they breech the neutrality stance.

 
At December 24, 2010 at 3:30 PM , Blogger Blue said...

(ps: if I"m wrong and B isn't yours, you don't deserve the sugarholic status that you have worked so hard to acquire.) ♥

 
At December 24, 2010 at 3:40 PM , Blogger Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

I CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE THE PJ PICS!! WHAT A FABULOUS TRADITION!!!

You have some talented gingerbread house architects!! I LOVE the clean lines of CANDY HAVEN and it is the one I want to eat the most, but creativity must go to the DRAGON'S REVENGE!

Have a fabulous Christmas Janae!!

 
At December 24, 2010 at 3:53 PM , Blogger Amanda@runninghood said...

Janae, you go ahead and post whatever comment you want of mine...any of the three hundred I wrote on this blog. :) glad you liked it instead of being annoyed by them. :)

 
At December 24, 2010 at 4:03 PM , OpenID kitkatkateblog said...

Oh my gosh! those are awesome gingerbread houses! I am so impressed! I am voting for the Candy Haven (I wonder whose that is... ;) ). Second place is the park..and I am just not a fan of the dragon one. But, it is unique though! Have fun, Janae!

 
At December 25, 2010 at 8:46 PM , Blogger lindsay said...

the "blood" from the dying gingerbread man in option A stuck out the most to me so i guess i vote A. they were all very creative though! if there had been one with m&m's it so would have gotten my vote.

i don't even know if i have cast my vote in time but oh well. merry christmas!
