Just a Spoon Full of Sugar

Aunt Tish blessed us with the most glittery sprinkles we've ever enjoyed at a Gingerbread House Party. Aren't they so lovely?
Though his mama made a valiant effort in trying to entice Blue Eyes into putting the candy on the house, his only interest was putting it in his mouth.
His sister, Buttercup, just wanted lots and lots of icing.
Ah, yeah, that's how it's done. This was about a four story gingerbread house by the time she finished.
Nick was too busy drinking homemade hot cocoa.
In addition to gingerbread houses you could make a candy necklace, a Christmas necklace, a nativity bracelet, or a scratch ornament.
Wow, Baby Boy is intrigued with the necklace making. This picture cracked me up. Ol' Mother Hubbard was patient though and persevered until the end when she spilled the whole thing. It was kind of funny. Well, I thought so anyway. I don't recall her finding the same humor in the spill.


  1. Wonderful pictures! Especially Buttercup -- those curls, those blue eyes and that smile! How precious!

  2. You do so many super cool things with your grandchildren. I think I'm going to start calling you Super Gramerly!

  3. Hold the applause, but the sentiment is appreciated. It helps to have them all close and as a teacher, be constantly exposed to ideas. Have I mentioned how very grateful I am that my kids came when I was young and the grandkids while still, well, youngish. Because let me tell you, at the end of the day I'm not a super anything.
    Thanks for your kindnesses girls-I like it.
