Last evening Aidan had to show me his new skill. He said, Watch this, Nana!
I told him that now along with the handprints on the windows, I'll be cleaning footprints off the door frames!!
Last evening I did something I have not done in years.
I picked beans! My brothers garden is still producing but they are finished with canning and freezing. So, my sister, Mary Ellen (on the left), invited me to join her in bean picking, tomato gathering and something else I will show you. Gina offered to come help too. It was a hot and humid evening but was still fun. How thrilling to have fresh beans!
My brother and his wife also have a row of beautiful sunflowers.
Today Zoe helped to make a treat. She was a bit sad to stay home while Mommy, Daddy and Aidan went to their rental property to do some work. Mommy was sure that Zoe would get too board as they worked. To help ease the sadness I suggested baking a cake. That did the trick.....so much so that Aidan almost decided to stay home too!
We sit the measuring cup on the underside of the lid. That way it's easy to put the spills right back into the container!
After measuring and pouring, it's time for the mixer.
Then the l.o.n.g wait as it bakes and cools. She played with Barbies and had lunch, a banana and grilled cheese sandwich. Nana took care of baby Noah and made a salad.
The wait is over......
Her smile says it all :)
After that, Baby needed fed and was sleepy. The Baker girl watched Winnie the Pooh. Nana was tired.
We kicked back and took a rest!
These kids light up my life.
