Eager eyes devour gingerbread gift
IMAGINE how quickly five kids could demolish a gingerbread house.
The Thorogood family couldn't believe their luck when they landed the Raglan Tavern's gingerbread house.
Margaret Leggett and her gingerbread house first appeared in The Observer's Weekend Magazine last weekend.
The Raglan Tavern owner raised $250 for the RACQ Capricorn Rescue Helicopter with the raffle of her gingerbread house which she makes every year.
A truckie, a regular visitor to the area and the tavern, won the house this week but decided to give it to the Thorogoods who were also passing through at the time.
Bronwyn Thorogood had a gingerbread house in her arms and kids salivating, before she knew it.
"We were returning from our Christmas holidays and stopped for some chips,'' Bronwyn said.
Despite the Christmas lollies the kids had devoured already, they each had their eye on a different part of the house.
