It's Grandma Time!!
I have been at my daughter's the last few days. The oldest grand is turning 6!!!! All the family gathered here this weekend. It is so much fun and so heart warming to see the grands becoming friends. The 2 oldest (almost 5 and 6), have wonderful discussions, put on dance parties and plays...and share lots of hugs. Even the 2 and 3 year old manage to have fun together....We started the celebration by all going to the circus. It has been a long time since i have attended a circus, but seeing it with these four made it a time to treasure and remember. We stopped for a late lunch, and then it was time for cake and gifts.
The birthday girl wanted a butterfly cake, so I had made 4 small hear shaped cakes. These would be the wings. I had bought lots of different candies and let each grand decorate their own wing. I used Hostess pink sonwballs as the 'body' and twizzlers as the antenna. It was a fun activity and ended up looking pretty darn cute. Everyone enjoyed having a piece of their own wing....and a taste of each others.
I am staying for the rest of the week. While the birthday girl is at school, i am learning all the correct names of construction vehicles and Thomas the train's friends from her almost 3 brother. The real birthday is later this week, i was there the day she was born, and every birthday since...a tradition we both want to continue. Master gave me a remember to be a good girl paddling before i left...so far it is still working!
Hope your week is going well,
