Tis the Season

Tis the season friends! Trust me when I tell you, making gingerbread houses is the BEST way to hone your Christmas spirit!

The WORST way? Drinking so much spiked eggnog that you conclude the night by vomiting. Not that I would ever do something so irresponsible. But I'm just saying as a general Christmas precautionary, you don't want to do that.

But more about gingerbread houses. I recommend going battle of the sexes with it. That's what Danny and I did with our friends.


We had my parents pick the winner over Skype. They of course called it a tie. But it was pretty obvious that the girls won. I mean, just look at our gingerbread house estate.

So good, right?

And that was after a lot of eggnog!!
So much eggnog.
Too much eggnog.

**People keep commenting how impressed they are with my gingerbread estate and that makes me feel bad. I thought it was obvious I couldn't make something so fantastic. As cited above, I got this photo here. Sorry for the confusion but thank you for the confidence!
