With busy work weeks consuming my life and the weeks whirling by so quickly there are times when it’s necessary to stop the madness and have a little fun. Right? And, what better way to do it than spend time with the girls.
And, by girls I mean my granddaughter, daughter and my mom!
So a sleepover at my moms was in order. And, since my sweet little princess loves to bake – we donned our matching aprons (beautifully embroidered by my talented friend, Shirley Wood) and bake we did.
Kaisley was in complete control and more than happy to get the cupcakes going. She mixed her own batter…..
Plopped it by spoonful’s into the cupcake holders….
With just a wee bit of help from her Mimi J.
Then she added the icing….
And, finally, meticulously added one little jelly bean to the top of each one. (Since her great-grandmother, Mimi J, always has a bowl of jelly beans on hand just for her.)
When all were done she proudly displayed them for a picture.
Okay so maybe she added a few more jelly beans to her own personal cupcake…..but, hey, what happens at Mimi J’s stays at Mimi J’s…..Right!!!
When Aunt Aly got off work she came over to join in on the fun….
KK, always happy to see her…..
Couldn’t get enough…..
And was more than happy to share her creation.
The next morning it was time for crafts…..
A walk to the park (with the babies, of course)……
Where we did a little rock climbing…
A little swinging….
A little swinging the babies, too (of course!)..…
Then there was little rope climbing….
And, other fun stuff…..
Like going down the slide – babies in tow.
Perfect “girl time” reprieve from a busy work life.
Now Kaisley already has our next slumber party all planned out: Pizza party, Fort Building, Movie and Popcorn. And, with her grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt as her slumber party pals….I’m thinking she’ll get just what she wants.
And, I for one can’t wait!
