Sugarplum Dreaming at 20:11

What I'm Doing at 20:11 in 2011... Today was a treasure... and I can't stop thinking about it. We joined the Shinkwin family in their annual tradition of making Gingerbread Houses.

We were invited last year, but Sierra and I didn't make it due to the fact that we were packing up the house for the move. When Steel came home with his perfectly wrapped house, needless to say we were very disappointed that we had missed out. Cindy promised another opportunity and we didn't let her forget.

The whole event was magical... with the "ingredients" all prepared for us, lunch provided, Christmas music playing in the background and everyone sharing in the experience.

This is the spread, before we started... Everything necessary for the perfect structure.

This shot is from the middle of the process.

And this is my masterpiece.

Even though this all happened earlier in the day, I find myself looking at the pictures and sharing the experience with Leroy. What a great memory.
