This Christmas season we made some gingerbread houses at the Peterson's. Shortly into the process we discovered that our house had a construction error. The gingerbread was way too soft. So salvaging what we could, our house went from a house (the left) to a tippee (the right). It did have the advantage of less surface area to cover though, so we were not too sad about that. Trying to save it was quite the feat though. We used stilts, hot glue guns and spare pieces of gingerbread... but it just was too soft and bowed on every wall.

Paul's favorite shirt was a little bit too worn. So for Christmas, I ordered him a new one and made him a BYU blanket. (Thanks for the help everyone, especially Diana who helped keep it a secret).
