Gingerbread House Fun

There are some things that you can't let other people win. Some things are just that important. Like the Gingerbread House Competition at Melaleuca on Friday. Here are some pictures of our gingerbread house/mansion. Granted, we only had about a collective five hours to make this bad boy. They were due at 5:00pm and we brought our masterpiece over at 4:59pm. Literally.

There were several things that we really wanted to make that we didn't have enough time to do (i.e., our automatic garage opener). Oh well. Judging ends Monday morning-- so we'll see how everything turns out. (But our gingerbread house has a bay window... so beat that suckas!)

And another thing that is big (or at least getting bigger) is my puppy. He's getting really, really big. Well, I think so anyway-- I've included some pictures of him as well.

He's so much fun! I think he'll have a lot of fun in California where we can (and will) take him on walks. Sometime this week we're going to take him to the park and let him play in the snow. He's never been in the snow before, so that should be fun.
One other thing I wanted to mention is that he's indecisive. It's hilarious. And he's like a little kid that gets a really cool Christmas present, but plays with the box instead. As you can see in this picture, he's playing with a cream cheese container-- his absolute favorite toy. He also likes this hideous tie that Freddy let him have to play tug-of-war with and another plush soccer ball. But his problem is this: he will have the ball in his mouth but want to play with the container. He obviously can't play with both, but he certainly tries--- and it's awesome. Sometimes he'll try to play with like, FOUR toys at once. Sooo funny. It's also funny when his foot is in the container and he tries to walk. Funny, funny puppy.
