The Perks of being a Grammy...


The last few days, no baking, but lots of Grammy-time with our granddaughter, Maddie.  Her first dance recital and I flew across the country to see her make her debut.  A big smile, sparkling eyes, and a personality that warms our heart--the best perks of being a Grammy.

I fly home tomorrow (tears in my eyes) but I will be baking again on Tuesday and planning on the end of July when both Ari and Maddie will be at our home--we're calling the week Camp Mimi's and you'll get to see a lot of kitchen time, crafts, and plenty of adventures that two 4 year olds can pack in a day!  XOXO

    1. One of their projects will be a handmade scrape book of the week--I'm even having them take their own photos so they can have the memory with them to look back on. <3

  6. What a doll! I'm sure Camp Mimi's will be a big hit with Maddie and Ari!
    Personally, I have one grand-cat and one grand-bird! No grandkids on the horizon for me.

    1. Both my girls didn't get married until they were in their 30s and I never thought I'd be a Grammy, but boy do I love the experience!

    2. My daughter is 29. Still time if she changes her mind.
      She and her boyfriend are just buying their 1st home. We plan to help them move this weekend!

    1. Being careful what you wish for! I'm sure there will be times I'm going to wish for "Camp Counselors" to help out--4 years old's can be quite a handful;-)
