Cake Making date with Paityn

Paityn came to stay with Pop Pop and Nana last evening while her parents attended a Young Adult gathering at church. We knew just what we were going to do.....make cupcakes! After dinner was put away, Nana and Paityn went to work. Paityn measured and poured, cracked an egg, turned on the mixer, filled the pans with cupcake papers. What fun!

Workin' hard!

I'm almost finished, Nana!
Notice the flour on her belly =)


While they were baking we went outside to the front porch. An earlier rain shower made everything wet....again! The porch was dry so Paityn used the sidewalk chalk and drew all over the porch. She is quite an artist!

Well, it seemed to take forever but the cupcakes got cool enough to frost and decorate....



Pour it on!

She's a good cake decorator!


And then it was time for.....

Tasting!!

For Pete's sake....
start at the TOP!

We ended the evening with a movie (she chose Barny) and some PBS kids games on my little computer. 

Thanks for hanging out with me, Paityn! Let's do it again soon!

Paityn is so sweet. I love that last photo of her eating the icing! My belly looks just like hers when I am baking - covered in flour!
My neighbor's great granddaughter is named Paityn and she is 2. She likes to visit Harriet (our dog!) and push her in the doggy stroller!
I know you enjoyed your precious time with her last night.
Enjoy today!
