Baking! Great Grandchildren! Fun!

Thursday we are going to southern California to spend Christmas with our family.

Really looking forward to spending time with these little treasures.

 Great grandson, Deegan and great granddaughter, Leila.

Can life get any better than this?

Started baking today, made many many mini pumpkin loaves.

Got loads of them wrapped in foil and in the freezer.

The kitchen just kept getting messier and messier

Of course I need my stool to sit on when I get too exhausted to stand.

 Made dozens and dozens of cookies, chocolate chip, pumpkin spice, peanut butter, and sugar cookies

Oh the kitchen got messier and messier.

Well, everything is packed away.  The kitchen is all put back together.

California here we come!!!!!

Life is Good.

      Thanks! I think I’m too young too. Truth is – I started early, my son started early and my granddaughter started early. Guess it runs in the family. Love em to bits.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog Ellen! Beautiful grandchildren and the goodies look delicious!

  3. I felt right at home in your kitchen. Your great grandchildren are beautiful. Have a wonderful Christmas with your family.

  4. The children are just adorable! I hope you have a wonderful visit! We spent last Christmas with our only grandchild , Caleb. We will not be able to see him this year as it is the turn of other Grandparents. Last year was very special and the best Christmas I had experienced in a long time. Children make the holiday so special. Have fun!!!!

  5. Have a wonderful trip and a Merry Christmas! 🙂
