Gingerbread houses--round two

Jack and Charlie came over Saturday for their turn making gingerbread houses. We had a ball!!! It takes so little to make a 5 year old happy. And an almost 9 year old was a great helper and a good sport with said 5 year old. Sharing candy decorations was successful--lots of trading going on. Charlie never stopped talking (see video below) and Jack sang as he worked. Note the frosting on Charlie's face. . . . not bad really. . . .couldn't been worse. THIS is what Christmas is all about--my little sugar plums. Explanation: Jack did not want to be videoed. He said a nice picture would be just fine. Love that boy.

Did he say there was a parrot on that gingerbread house?? So THAT'S what I've been missing all these years! A Christmas parrot. Thank you Charlie.

Did I already mention you are the best grandma in the world? Well, you are!

So fun to get to see you and Cris last week. Love you guys.

It's official! You are their favorite. There is no way I'm ever gonna outdo "grandma" status. I may as well just give up now.

I would kill for a grandma like you! Figuratively speaking. It's good to hear Charyee's voice, too. My favorite kid accent of all time. Keep those videos coming.

A video is NOT a picture. Duh! Sorry to tell you all this, but he's losing his accent. You no longer need to spell out what he says like Mark Twain.

Did you get those gingerbread house kits at Costco? My kids want to do them so bad but there's no way I'm making it from scratch.
