Have a Cool Yule!

Our seven year old son was excited to tell us at the dinner table Monday night about the gingerbread house he was constructing at school: "It's a flat top -- an Eichler! And I'm the only one doing it that way."

The following day we were really looking forward to seeing it and then.... he ate it.

But luckily our friend, Toni, took a snap of it before it was devoured while we were out having our "date night." Other than the flat top not sure the rest fits the modern aesthetic. When you're talking about candy, more is more after all!

Not to be outdone, our five year old daughter got to work and drew a picture of a house with the label "Ikler" and arrows pointing to the house. Her drawings always crack us up. This one has what looks to be a bird-o-copter and other interesting features. I tagged the various explanations on the Flickr pic.

Wishing all of you a Cool Yule!
