Sunday Afternoon Fun

Note the budding chef - -she's making 'fruit punch' in Grandpa's hat.


I may have mentioned in the past that we have slipped into what seems to be a family tradition now (and we love it, in case you wondered!) of having Miss Maya come home from church with us. She has lunch here, changes clothes and plays with anyone who's available, and then when Chris, Natie and Mason come over for dinner, she heads home with them. We love the one-onone time with her -- she's so imaginative and funny.

Yesterday she ended up in one of my t-shirts (the outfit I keep here for her was still at her house and hadn't made it back here yet) which she thinks is cool. She had her KidCuisine lunch (I buy them especially for her - -usually she picks them out herself at the grocery store), a little Arthur and Clifford time (since we're not DVR-ers yet, I tape a variety of PBS shows for her), some dress-up time with Monkey, some fort-building time, and then she and Grandpa had a Perfection tournament. Guess who won? (well, we did, of course, as we always do when we get time with the kiddoes!)
It's such fun to watch her with her uncle and her grandpa, both of whom love her dearly and she returns that affection. Of course, she 'helped' me fix some dinner as well -- she was responsible pretty much entirely for the cheese bread, putting the pie in the oven, and throwing the corn into the boiling water. She does love to cook (and I love the help)!
Something more to smile about -- Sundays with Maya!

That sounds like so much fun!! That is so neat that you are building such a strong relationship with your grandkids. You just gave me a good idea, I was trying to think of a new game to buy Kaitlin for Christmas. Perfection! That will be a great one.
