Another night I went with my brother and his family to the Gingerbread Village and Teddy Bear Town at the Grand American Hotel. Half a dozen Utah chefs donated houses to the Gingerbread Village. The houses are part of a silent auction that will help Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. It's free and on display through Dec. 20.
There were over 300 teddy bears in the holiday suite donated by local companies. You could also bring a new teddy bear to donate to children from the Salvation Army.
Here is one of the gingerbread houses we saw. All of the houses were made completely out of edible material. They looked amazing!
I asked Bev to show me which animal was her favorite and she chose the pony, of course! The kids loved seeing all the bears and Jane wanted to kiss all of them.
Afterwards we went over to Temple Square to see the lights. We almost froze to death, but thank goodness for the Visitor's Center and the Tabernacle.
