You can remove the specific height on ".gsc-input-box." The problem is that the outer wrapper has a specific height but its children are taller than the parent.

.gsc-input-box {
    border: 1px solid #D9D9D9;
    background: #fff;
    /* height: 25px; */ /*REMOVE THIS ONE*/

In addition to Juana's suggestion I would remove the top padding on the td container

table.gsc-search-box td {
	vertical-align: middle;
	padding-top: 0; /* ADD THIS */

I added the align and padding to the already existing class of .gsc-control-searchbox-only td and it worked.  Thank you both for helping me.
