Gingerbread House


On Thanksgiving Day John made a gingerbread house with our nephews, Flynn & Elijah.
As I was watching him interact with the boys I couldn't help but think about Grand-babies. I know that they are years away but I can't wait to be involved in their lives and spoil the dickens out of them. John is going to be an awesome Pap!!!Flynn & Elijah had a blast putting the candies on the house. I think for every one candy that made it onto the house, one was put into their mouths as well.
They had to be quick because the icing dried fast.


Voila! The Gingerbread House!

When they were done naughty Uncle John squirted icing into Flynn's mouth. He was hyper the remainder of the day to say the least!!!

I agree. I think he will be great granddad. He seems to be enjoying spoiling the kids. Looks like fun!

Giving the kids the extra icing is definitely a grandpa move.
He'll be a good one when the time comes.

We used to do that every year with the kids. They always had so much fun as did we watching them put the candies on.

Great memories!
