The Making of a House

My grandchildren have very full social calendars.  Between their schedules and mine, it's almost impossible to get together with the 3 of them at one time.  (Forget the oldest one--between sports and working, he's never available--but would an 18-year-old want to hang out with us anyway?)

So today the all the stars aligned and we were able to spend some time together.

Making.   Gingerbread.   Houses

Now you have to understand that I'm not a "crafty" person.  I usually run screaming out of the house when someone mentions doing some kind of artsy/craftsy project. But you also have to understand that I'm desperate for activities to do with these little people.  So it was I who came up with this idea.

Youtube made it look so easy.  I'm here to tell you, though, that it's not.  (Jacob agreed with me, as you can see in the photo)  But we persevered and they each wound up with some semblance of a Gingerbread House.

And they had fun, which was really the main objective anyway.

Such a precious photo…this one's a keeper for sure!!! If it were me, I'd get three copies made and framed…two for the parents, one for grandma! :-)

What wonderful memories you're creating for your grandchildren. They are blessed to have you in their lives.
