Pie faced! Plus GRAND Social No 186 link party for grandparents

Pie faced!

Happy Christmas week!

I gave my grandsons and their parents their Christmas gifts from PawDad and me when I visited them a couple weeks ago. One of the gifts I gave Bubby, Mac, and Jak was the game Pie Face. It was an instant hit with Mac, who exclaimed, "OH! I wanted this game for Christmas!" as he enthusiastically ripped off the wrapping paper.

Bubby — who doesn't like whipped cream, a main ingredient of Pie Face game play — wasn't all that thrilled at first. He was a trooper anyway and ended up enjoying being pie faced more than he thought he would (in large part because you need not eat the whipped cream "pie").

Mac, on the other hand, considers eating the whipped cream the very best part — and begged Gramma to play one more time right before we left for the airport for my departure home.


Bubby was in school during that final Pie Face round with Gramma and Mac, thus missing out on eluding the dreaded pie in the face. Jak, who is still a tad young for the Pie Face fun, didn't play with us at all during my stay but I'm sure he'll have a turn or two when I visit their house again in April.

I'm determined to get Mommy Megan to play with us in April, too, as she has yet to be pie faced! (And I guarantee it has nothing to do with that daughter of mine not liking whipped cream... especially when it's sprayed from a can! Right, Meg!?)

GRAND Social No. 186

Thank you for joining me for the Christmas week edition of the GRAND Social link party for grandparents! Enjoy!

grand social link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src="http://grandmasbriefs.squarespace.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg" alt="Grandma’sBriefs.com" width="125" height="125" /></a>
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
