Cooky Day with the Grandkids

The aprons were a smash hit! This is me (I'm the white-haired grandma with no eyes when I smile - in case you couldn't tell).

Briana is 7, AJ is 22 months as of yesterday. He has hit the terrible twos and I love every minute of it! (Paybacks are extremely fun -- my own mom used to say, "I can't wait til you have kids of your own!")

We had a great time making cookies and playing. Then I had to drive back home, go out to dinner, then crash in the recliner! Totally worn out, but worth every second of it! LOL

What a great picture...and the aprons look fabulous! What a wonderful memory for all of you.

Cute picture! I'm thinking you'd better get busy and make aprons in a size or two larger for next year. They're both going to outgrow those and I'm betting that's the first thing they ask for next year when it's time to make cookies.

Oh, yes, payback time! I can't wait for my son to grow up (pretty big assumption there!) and have kids so they can do to him what he's done to me!

Darcie said...'re such a cool Grandma! What great gifts they'll both have to remember forever: the aprons...and the memories!

Oh yes. And I'm sure the cookies are great too. But doubt they'll stick around too long. ;-)

Gee, my mom tells me about payback all the time now that I have my own terrible/terrific two year old... The aprons look fantastic!!

Laurie said...

Great pic! You look great with no eyes! *VBG* And Judy is right...ya better get ready to make aprons every year!

As for paybacks...oh yes...I can hardly wait for my kids to have kids...JUST LIKE THEM!!! ;)

Glad you enjoyed your day!

Joanne said...

Thanks everyone! Never thought about making aprons every year -- good idea! Only, I think I'll find a pattern ahead of time!

Tracey said...

What a great pic! It's so good to put a face to my Maverick friend's names. :o) You built some wonderful memories for those grandkids of yours.

Hey! Those aprons fit GREAT. Didn't you say that you didn't have a pattern and you were winging it? The kids are so cute and look happy with Grandma! I only WISH my Mom was still alive for payback. She would LOVE my little 2.5 year old - she always called them "The Terrific Twos" and on a trying day I can hear her say that and it makes me smile. She just loved kids.

Oh your grandchildren are sooo cute and the aprons are adorable on them! I'm so glad you showed us a picture of them wearing them!

I'm looking forward to payback time!!!

Hey JT! I love your picture, it's always nice to put a face to a name - especially one you're so familiar with! Anyway, loved your pics, grandkids are great looking (but you knew that already) and your quilts are gorgeous! And I'm so JEALOUS of your machine! LOL
