Okay, I know I haven't posted on my blog in a while. It has kind of taken a backseat in my life for the moment. This is simply a shameless plug to get facebook votes on my gingerbread house for the Ivory Homes Gingerbread contest. My friend and I spent so many hours working on this that I can't even count them. We are hoping to raise money for my friend's American Cancer Society Relay for Life Team. This is a fabulous contest because it gives so much to charity. They also auction off the homes to benefit a charity. I'm crossing my fingers that they were able to raise a good amount from our house. It would feel amazing to be able to use my skills to help out others in need this holiday season!
The gingerbread homes are modeled after Ivory Homes house plans. We decided to throw in some Utah humor by choosing a townhouse floor plan and pitting BYU fans against U of U fans. I hope you enjoy the pictures, and if you have a moment in the next couple days could you please follow the link and vote?? The contest ends Monday December 16th 2013 at 5:00 pm. We are house #4 "Rivalry Homes"

Gingerbread houses aren't complete with out Santa. Hmmmm, I wonder if he is a Ute fan?

The BYU side bedroom
The idea for this house came about because I have a couple siblings who are Ute fans. I am a die hard BYU fan and alumni, so I am partial to all the blue. Go cougars!!
