Looks Like Gaia Couldn't Stay Awake Till The End of The Game

Our youngest granddaughter loves spending time with her Paw-Paw watching football games. Looks like our little one couldn't stay awake till the third quarter!

Dollar Tree Christmas Stocking

I've been thinking about purchasing my granddaughters' personalized Christmas stocking when I saw stockings at Dollar Tree Store. A light bulb went off so I bought 2.

When I got home, I pulled out my gold glitter glue, wrote each of their names on them. Then I let them dry for 24 hours before hanging them up!

Icing and Decorating Sugar Cookies With My Granddaughter

Last night, I baked a batch of homemade sugar cookies. I love baking! Especially this time of year!

Our oldest granddaughter joined me in the icing and decorating. We had a great time chatting while finishing our yummy creations.

I made the cookie icing from scratch. Just a cup of confectionery sugar and 3-4 teaspoons of water. P.S. I ended up adding more sugar because the texture wasn't to my liking.

After allowing the icing to set, it was time to add some color! I decorated with gold sprinkles while our granddaughter used the pink sprinkles her cookies.

The family loved the cookies. Only 2 of them mentioned missing the butter taste.
I'm so glad I made plenty of cookies. We gave several to the neighbors, who quickly gobbled them up.

By the way, I use a butter recipe. I found this sugar cookie recipe at Country Crock website using margarine.

Gaia Has Turned 9 Months Old This Month!

Our granddaughter, Gaia is now 9 months old!

She's crawling with great speed. Cruising around the furniture. And even take a few steps without assistance!

Her personality is continuing to blossom. She smiles, laughs and talks with delight.

Our little girl is even waving bye-bye.

It's been a joy watching her grow this month!
