Gingerbread houses can be made in any state, at any time, so of course this holiday tradition had to continue. Ridge likes to load his up with candy on the inside that isn't frosted to anything so he can snack on it later. Laine had my help so hers is the most basic design possible since I'm not very good at construction. Sommer made a "bakery." Cannon did a great job on his own this year. And Eric was there to help. I would not have attempted this project without him nor would I have tried with Massimo around. He was in bed.
Today we picked Eric up from the airport and headed to downtown Salt Lake for lunch and a stroll around the temple grounds. We toured the conference center...
and took a few pictures at the temple. Yes, this would have been a better evening activity with all the Christmas lights but this year daytime was good for us. Next year we'll try an evening visit.
The best part is that we're all together. Eric is home until January 2nd.
