Two NOLA Guys with Graham Crackers, Candy, Icing, and Other Materials

I went to visit Clio II at his boarding school in northern Alabama this weekend. As a parent-child team, we were tasked with building a gingerbread house. Other parent-child teams built some wonderfully traditional gingerbread houses. This is what resulted from our work. It was Clio II's idea and design, although I take some pride in crafting the curve of the roof (using the ends of plastic spoons and icing).

That is so cool! I especially love the colored lights around the top - just like the real thing on special event night.

I am now thinking of commissioning the Clio team to replace my traditional nativity scene...got any ideas???

With my sand slow internet connection in the middle east, it took a while to load...which added to the suspense.

"What the hell is that? Huh? What? Are those M&Ms? Wait! That is so cool! Lookit the ramps!"

Thank you both for the smile.

I find the graham cracker entrance ramps tasty.

It's very similar to my 1967 contruction at #2 Canal Street.

We like the use of white for the super structure.

Both of our great feets in New Orleans and Houston are white.

697 feet

Tallest building in New Orleans and Louisiana.

Tallest building in the south 1972 - 1976

The successful use of the dome structure clearly may help with my construction.

Check out my dome.
