I just have to show you the sweet mouse pad our granddaughter made for me at school. We make candy cane cookies together, and this is her depiction of the cookies and my kitchen. She has it pretty accurately done, and note the butter, sugar, flour and eggs that she has sitting on the island counter. The mixer we use is sitting on another counter, and she shows our refrigerator, pantry door and stove.
My sister and her husband and my niece and her husband and their sweet baby visited for a couple days this week, and we enjoyed their visit so much. What a treat to have them. Our kids and their families were here for dinner and the evening. This is a picture of hubby and I, our DGC, and my darling great-nephew. The baby was such a hit and the three older kids just wanted to be close to him.
