Since we first got here, Mom has declared that Mondays (her day off) are “GiGi Days!”
Of course neither the girls or I complained one bit about that – that was exciting news!
Most Mondays they bake a new cake together.. then one Monday they planted flowers, another Monday they’ve done other fun things. But, most Mondays they do bake cakes!
So, here they are baking a cake..
(To me, Mom is beautiful even when she first wakes up and is wearing her robe!)
She let the girls know THEY would get to do the whole cake!
They were SO excited because when I bake with them.. I can’t help but do part of it.
Hannah is still kind of doing her hiding thing that she does when she first gets up and Mommy gets her dressed and ready for the day.
OK, Sweet Sarah Faith, we new two eggs.
GiGi asked if they get to crack the eggs. Madi normally does but not Sarah.
Well, that wouldn’t work one bit for GiGi.
So, here you can see that Sweet Sarah is cracking her egg and did a perfect job!
My little Angel Madi did hers like a PRO!
Sarah is getting the oil…
Madison is measuring the water…
(Mom and Madi are giggling because Madi’s trying so hard not to spill one drop!)
Mom teaches them how to use a mixer.
(they had never used one before)
This mixer is older than *I* am! Mom got it in her first wedding shower. I’m 32 years old so she obviously takes good care of her stuff. Plus, I think that things were made better “back then.”
Sarah Faith is mixing! FUN!!!!!
…..while Madi Grace greases the bundt pan…
Madi Grace’s turn!
OK, GiGi couldn’t leave my itsy bitsy girl out!
So she and Hannah worked together to fill the bundt pan.
It’s hard to see but Hannah is scraping it into the pan with my Mom.
GiGi taught the girls to wash dishes. (something I have never done because I struggle about making them do chores other than cleaning their own room and bathroom and folding towels.)
They had a BLAST doing this!
While they waited, they played a game called Farmville.
Ta Dahhhh!! The cake is finished! It tasted delicious!
Thank you, GiGi, for ALL of our BLESSED Mondays with YOU!
A thankful mommy and daughter, Cass
