Who doesn't like dogs and sugar?

Well, maybe you. In which case get off my blog.

Couple of random dispatches from New Mexico before I fully move on to writing about the new year:

First, meet my parents' new dogs. They were initially skeptical of me, but they softened within hours. And they are definitely more chill than all the heelers we have had over the years.


Scruffy and Cecil. No, I have no clue of the name origins.


Second, the Albuquerque Airport* has an annual gingerbread house competition put on by its retail businesses, where the eventual results are auctioned for charity. They really outdid themselves this year. I wish I had gotten photos of the rest because they were honestly all so impressive, but they had attracted a ton of attention on the busy post-Christmas morning and I was almost being pushed along like I was trying to view the Mona Lisa.


My fledgling homebuilding enterprise has been epically put to shame.


*They insist on calling themselves the "Sunport" and for some reason this irritates me to no end. So I refuse to use it. :)

I'm equally impressed by those dogs and the gingerbread houses.

The gingerbread houses were unreal! The church one is modeled after a real church and it's pretty intense how closely the details match.

I am currently dog obsessed, so every dog looks cute.

They were indeed adorable. And you can't tell from the angle in this photo, but Cecil has one blue and one brown eye, adding further to the adorableness.

Of course I think you should move back to New Mexico anyway, but ... those dogs! Two more good reasons. :)
