and the winner is…

December 24, 2008

the house with the Yellow Windows!  Did you figure it out?  Did you guess it was mine 🙂  It was a tight race and a fierce competition, but yellow takes the win with 4 more votes than blue.  Finally, some redemption for the humiliating loss a few years back. 

Nick, I love you mucho!   It was a great challenge.   I suppose we’re tied on artful food sculpture contests…so we’ll have to come up with something grand for a tie breaker.  Oh and we might blow up old blue with fireworks today…(Dad’s idea, not mine)

Thanks to everyone who helped settle the score and placed a vote…(especially all you yellow house fans 🙂  Wishing you all a very Merry (almost) Christmas!

We need your vote!

December 22, 2008

A few years back, Nick and I had a pumpkin carving contest.  These were pre-blog days, and the judging was far from anonymous.  We simply emailed all our family and friends and asked them to cast a vote.  I suffered a bitter defeat that Halloween, and it has haunted me ever since.  So when Nick challenged me to a gingerbread house competition, how could I resist?

Here’s how it works…Take a look at the photos below…(in an effort to be fair, we won’t tell you whose is whose)…note that one house has blue windows while the other has yellow.  Then, cast your totally anonymous vote below for your favorite.  The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve.
