Papa and Nana came to visit.

Papa and Nana (Erics parents) came to visit on Saturday and left early this morning. The kids love when they come and visit. They get to spend one on one with them and create such wonderful memories. Our adventures while they were here consisted of wrestling papa, playing baseball outside with papa. Papa got to walk me to school Monday morning. We went out to dinner and celebrated Blakes b-day at a Red Robin ( we had them sing to him for his birthday and it scared the bajeebers out of him. poor little guy), going to church, and making a gingerbread train. Here are some pics. We didn't get much. The majority of our pictures are of our gingerbread train adventure:

Blakes gingerbread man, made by mom.

The boys working hard on their project.

Oops, I got a little on me. I guess I better lick it off! Yum!

Blake got sick and tired of us telling him to stop eating all the candy. He thought that was the fun part. In fact, at one point we spilled some sprinkles on the floor and the boys thought that was the best part

Here is our finished product.

Thanks to dad and all his help. He takes these things very seriously.

And then one last pic of Tommy and papa at the end of the day. They played hard and then pooped out.

That turned out so cute!... I can totally see Eric getting way into it. Love Blake's grumpy face. He cracks me up. The picture of Tommy with papa is sweet too.

the only time our kids have done "gingerbread" is at school ~ with graham crackers. Some day I may get up the nerve...but probably not. ;)

That was a sweet blog! I love Blake's little frown. How many times have I seen that?? What fun, though!!
