New Camera

I came home for break, which is awesome.
I also told my mom about how I wanted to eventually  (eventually, because for college students everything happens in the 'eventually' and never the 'soon', 'now', or 'future') get a camera.
Then, like finding the fountain of youth she said she had an extra camera and it is a sweet camera. It has 14 mega pixels, 5x zoom, a nice screen for viewing, and it's a good size. I was so happy that I actually ran in a circle with the precious wonderful camera in my shaking hands.
Naturally, I tried to turn it on to take my first picture, but it shut off- low battery. Okay, that's fine. I asked my mom where the cord was, she didn't know. I asked my dad, he didn't know. I turned the house upside down looking for the cord to charge it, and, well, no such luck.
Hurray for my miracle brick of useless potential!

Those promised picture(s) of my Gingerbread house!

Sophia and I made it and it's as much hers as mine. She's the genius that made the huge rainbow tree and the Santa-Bulls-eye (it's the santa in the lollipop) and the candycane heart on the back you can't see (I'll try to get a pic of it eventually).
A photographer actually came up to comment on our house while we were making it and all he could say was "well it's colorful" then he looked at the lollipop and just couldn't get any words out. So Sophia stepped in and said "That? That is Artistic Inspiration at its finest."
He just nodded, but then we all laughed because, come on, Narnia is ridiculous and we know it. But it was so much fun to make!!
(Minus the mini-war Sophia and I had while making it. we just kept putting random candy into each other's water glass. Somehow, mine turned purple and none of the candy was purple...)
Merry Holiday!

Narnia :)

Today I made a gingerbread house.
We called it Narnia.
By the end of it, when we finished the house, I feel as if I ended up covered in more icing than that sizable and sweet structure; I somehow managed to get it smeared all up and down my forearms as well as across my shirt. I also ended up with a tummy ache because I ate my weight in sweets.
Regardless, it was so worth it!
[Insert picture of it here] <--whoa, so cool!
And next year, we're going to do it again and do something so much cooler and better and awesome-er and we're going to win!!
(and hopefully I won't eat so much candy because I really do feel sick and this isn't too good for the day before finals)

Merry almost Christmas!
