So funny, your little decorator...years ago my youngest daughter decided to decorate a Christmas star by plastering those silver balls all over it and then proceeded to present it to her grandpa. He said he knew who decorated that cookie, and my husband said, "Be careful dad, that one will break your dentures!" Children, God bless them.


In Europe or America....boys will be boys!!! JAJA!!! Classic!!

Lisa Mason

That is a riot! Love it!


Oh! That is fantastic, i'm still laughing.



LOL! You're too much! Y'all crack me up. Laughing so hard the cats took off. What a way to shed a few post-holiday pounds with vigorous belly laughs.

Thanks! :D


This is the funniest post! Laughing so hard . . . Practically ROFL here! I immediately heard "Silver balls, silver balls. It's Christmas time in the city. I love the kid's imagination. Please don't show him any of these comments until he's 18. :D Save them.

You and yours have honestly made my day.
