Making Cookies

Despite the cold and flurries yesterday, I decided to see if C (my Big Brothers Big Sisters, lil' sis) could come out and play! Her mom said she could so I went over to pick her up and we came back here to make cookies. She said she had never made cookies from scratch before so we had fun mixing and measuring and scooping. We made a double batch of oatmeal chocolate chip and I sent most of them back home with her to share with her mom and sisters. It was a fun afternoon and I'm glad she was able to come over to play! Here are a couple of pics of her working hard! (She was great at clean-up too!)

Grama's House

I hope that my grandkids always look forward to coming to "Grama's House" they way I used to when I was a kid. I would rather spend time there than any place in the world. Over the past month three of our grands have spent a good amount of time with us and I have documented it with pictures.

Ephraim spent about five days while his mom and sis were in Boston. We had a good time! One of the highlights was going to Granddad's office for a visit. He loved running up and down the very very long hallways and then had a nice time visiting with one of his mom's blog lurkers who has been following his and his sister's development since the beginning. Here he is sitting on "Mimi's" lap...

And here's what he was looking at:

Sarah also spent some time here doing her favorite things...

And Brody was here just this week doing one of his favorite things....
It's always fun with the kiddos around!
Just wish Charlotte could have joined us for some fun.
