(November 27} We threw a Christmas Kick-off /Ugly Sweater Party the day after Thanksgiving with my family and a few of my aunts and cousins. We made a huge mess, but lots of memories! We cheated and hot glued our houses, but that led to some very sound structures and intricate details. I was impressed with all the creativity. And the sweaters. Us 2nd-generationers really pulled it together for this one. Scott and Nicole won. Oh snap!

Our Christmas houses: candy cane cottage (me), candy cottage (blake), half-done cottage (Evelyn), minimalist mansion (Brandon--his fun comes in building, not decorating).
