Nana, make a cake....now?

Those were the first words to me when Aidan arrived yesterday =) He loves to help in the kitchen. (could be a new chef in the making!) On Tuesday when he was here, I made an apple cake but needed to 'just get it done' so he was not invited to help. He was sad about that. I told him that maybe we could make a cake when he comes the next time......guess who has a wonderful memory! We made cupcakes. He measured, he poured, he stirred, he even insisted on helping me crack the egg!

 Oh where are the pictures?? Nana never thought of taking them.

He ate a good dinner of chicken, applesauce and then.....

Yummmm!
Enjoying the fruit of his labor =)

Looks like the cupcake gets a Thumbs Up!




We packed up some to send home with him to share with Mommy and Daddy. He chose them from this pan because he wanted the red valentine papers that he put in the pan. He is so sweet!


Today is another day of ice. It's raining and freezing on the roads and trees. Things seem to be improving. The salt truck went up our steep hill and cars are going at a more normal pace. I have enough inside kind of things to do that I won't need to go out today.......Spring, could you make an early appearance, pleeeease?

Have a great week-end! Go, Steelers, I guess..... Ellen is rooting for Green Bay!

Such a darling child.

My girls used to make those same cupcakes - we called them "surprise cupcakes", because of that yummy middle.

What a fun grandma you are, Doris.

Fondly,
Glenda
