We celebrated this last weekend. Our theme was bubbles.
Aunt Terra made stuff for tacos, Grandma made 3 different flavors of homemade ice cream. I made Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lemon Cookies, and Zucchini Brownies.
I didn't plan on making so many desserts, but here's why I did:
- At first I made extra Chocolate Chip Cookies for our works, and they devoured most of the cookies. One girl from my husband work sent a note home with him saying, "You make the best cookies ever." Needless to say I had to make something else, or more Chocolate Chip Cookies.
- I decided to make Zucchini Brownies. We have so many Zucchini's from our garden. I need to use them up in whatever ways I can. Why not add them to desserts? They were so good! The problem was: The Daddy wrote the recipe down for me. *He used his Smart Phone, since we didn't have internet. The recipe was for a 9x9 pan. I was thinking it would be for a 9x12 pan. I didn't want him to have to find a whole other recipe to write down. So I went with it.
- Looking at my desserts, it still looked like we were limited. A little of this, and a little of that. Our family is growing! We have 10 adults, 2 teens, 4 active boys and Emerson who doesn't eat much and Edison who only gets Mommy's milk. Back to the drawing board. I made Lemon Cookies. They were so good!
Here's what I got Emerson: Matching hat, tie, and leg warmers. He looked great!
Emerson got a bike from one Grandma. His other Grandma got him a swing. He's just learning how to grip things. This is a bike he's used in therapy. That thing on his head is a hearing aid he's testing out.
Here's Edison being passed around:
Terra looks scary in the background. This is Edison with Grandma - my Mom.
This is Great Aunt Becky with Edison. The boys think of her as a Grandma.
Here's Isaak holding his youngest cousin Edison.
Grandpa wouldn't let Edison sleep. He kept touching him. Then Edison woke up crying. Right after Edison woke up I looked over and there is Grandpa - my Dad sleeping away. What was I to do? I tickled my Dad. I touched and pestered him just like he did his grandson. He was annoyed with me, but that's ok. I get this pestering side from him. Secretly I know he enjoyed the attention.
What did I get?
My parents give me money and 1 item. This time I got a Fellowes Laminator. I got 2 bread pans. Daddy gave me a leaf blower | sucker. Romantic I know. I asked for all the above.
