Smother it in candy and call it a day

Oh boy did we have a good time at Mark and Jay'me's for our gingerbread house making. We're still trying to come down from the sugar high. Please tell me I'm not the only one that applies the one for the house two for me program. *Anyone, anyone*
Humph, well then. Jay'me had these cute little houses all set. One for each participant.

Cute already in need of something more.

Let's dress it up. Bedazzle it.

Huh, what? No, I've never heard that my child looks exactly like me. I don't see it all. Nope, not at all.
Mini-me and her finished project.

Craig (Mark's brother in from Florida for the holiday) absolutely participated in the eat two place one game. If you zoom in you can see the icing in the corners of his mouth. I'm pulling you down with me, Craig.

Master Brogan made a pond and a fence on his house. Seriously, a pond... such ingenuity.

Sweet Maddie and her perfectly appointed home.

Maddie's brother Peyton. He was closer to 5 candies in the mouth to 1 on the house ratio. I know he didn't sleep at all that night.

The winner of our decorate this house contest.... Grandpa Stevens. Check out those details. Awesome display of candy decorating skills.

Mark serenaded us with Christmas carols while we decorated. Scott snapped photos (hence the full auto, flash exposure on these photos).

A wonderful evening.

Thankfully the snow held off until tonight.

It's going gang busters out there now.

Scotty isn't feeling so hot tonight. He's got a low fever and is generally feeling icky. Bone scan as soon as we can get it scheduled, the insurance company finally responded about 4 minutes before the scheduling office closed.
No presents are wrapped. The Christmas cards are addressed and will be mailed tomorrow. A few small things to pick up but we're almost there. 4 of the 8 cookies got made yesterday.
We're doing it up right in this house. No regrets.

It was wonderful having a peek at your night with Jay'me and Mark.
Hope Scott is better for Christmas.
