Where have I been?...

I've been having fun with our granddaughter!!! We had her with us last week and it was a blast. We packed as much fun in every day as we could. She is a fun kid and she was ready for whatever was on tap for the day.

The first day we made Stuffed Pasta Shells. They were so good. We didn't have pancetta so we substituted bacon and it worked fine.


The next day we made chocolate cupcakes with white filling.

Thursday, was great because she got to have her first riding lesson. She did very well. Oh, before we went to the stables we made a stop at the local Sweet Shoppe for jelly beans and an ice cream cone.
Friday was her last day and we made her a message board for her room. She learned to sew and iron.
We had a great time last week and now it's back to business. I hope that you are having a wonderful summer. Blessings from the holler...

Such fun things you got to share with your granddaughter. She appears in the photos to be the perfect age for those activities. We bet she will cherish the memory of her time as a child with you when she is older.

Well Mrs. JP, I do believe you have outdone yourself. What a great time and wonderful memories for your granddaughter! The shells with salad look YUMMO! Stuffed shells are right up there with my favorites. I love seeing girls take on baking---great you are teaching her. AND a horse-riding lesson! Oh I wish I had that when I was a child. Most of all that message board is just perfect for a girl's room. You are super Granny for sure!
