“Little Man” fun…

Since I have been home, I have spent lots of time with my “little man”…Here at home…just hanging out…

The first thing he says to me is…Mimi what are we going to bake today? We then pull out the book and look at all the recipes and pictures…When I was reading the names of the recipes…he recognized Dark Chocolate…as you know he loves my stash of dark chocolates in my sewing studio…

So we pulled all the ingredients…I have to line them up in order now…because…I easily get distracted or I just can’t remember.  But I sometimes have forgotten an ingredient…but now my newest method of lining them all up makes it easier…Then “little man” steps up and starts putting in the ingredients…and watches them mixWhen we are all done mixing- he can’t wait to lick the paddle…then he moves on to the spatula…Then it’s time to scoop them out..onto the baking sheetsand he doesn’t let me do it…HE has to do it…lol….He is using the large cookie scoop for this recipe…he also was in a hurry to put the dark chocolate chips in before I realized they should have been hand mixed in…the mixer kind of broke them up and you can’t see them…but you can when you eat them!!

we packaged some to freeze and bake later.

They came out so pretty!!!  Click Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies -for another great recipe..Taste testing in the car…and yes..I let him drive his car in the house…he can’t wreck my “real” distressed floor!!

Then we spent the rest of the day…building his new Lego Fire Truck...he has a birthday coming soon so…I might have had a gone a little overboard with his presents so why not play with one now!!!  This one is also easy for Grandma’s to help put together…lol!He was so proud of it after it was assembled!!! He is also starting to play very well by himself…This lego table I found at a flea market was the best $10 bucks I have spent on him…he also has his Daddy’s and Uncle’s legos to play with…I only saved the big duple legos…
I then had to “pack” him a lunch …after lunch we played hide and seek…then he played with Papa when he got home…all I heard was giggles…Nick also wanted me to Thank all of you who asked about him at Road to California…He is doing pretty well after both of his surgeries…the Doc just tells him it will take time to feel 100% and to get his hormone levels to where they need to be, they are watching and testing all the time…He currently is in “Man-0-pause”that was the Docs term…he’s having lots of hot flashes and other such things happening…it’s kind of funny…but not to him of course…He is planning on being in Paducah!!!

Time to start stitching for today!!! I am working on setting 98 blocks…and I know…I will show you soon when I have something substantial to show..I won’t wait til I’m done…I want you to see it in person…not just on paper…We are talking about Triangle Gatherings…of course.

This is it!!!!……98 total…I am glad to be done, but will soon be working on my setting…if you need for some reason to do more blocks do so by  switching the dark/light around…we might have done this on a couple.  Hopefully you will get a few moments to stitch these during our Holiday Season…Enjoy!

They will come fast now!!

 

 

 

I am reading/listening to  the Outlander series…8 books in all…I just started book six…I love this series…and then when at the Outer Banks…Cousin Mary brought her Amazon stick and we watched most of the series!!! So now my goal is to get Nick to watch them with me again…because I just found out we already have STARZ!!!!

It is historical and very interesting…Scotland/Jamaica/America in the 18th century…must read and watch…the books are sooooo much better!!!
