Gingerbread Houses are in and they are fabulous. The judges had a
difficult time of it and even had to pull out a flashlight and measuring
tape to break a tie. The winner is Sara Claveau with her creation
"Chateau d'Isaac." It is a masterpiece ! It is on display at Chez Glass
Lass until December 20th along with all the other equally wonderful
entries that are on display in village shop windows.
A very Happy
Thanksgiving to all our American friends. We will be thinking of you on
the couch, monster turkey sandwich in hand cheering on your favourite
football team. Go Pats!
