Papa and I have never cared that much for whipped cream on desserts. We can take it or leave it. And so, I don't buy it for pies at holidays either. But this year, I knew I wanted to do this with Sammy. She's old enough. Every kid gets to do this until such time they can do it to themselves when Mommy or Daddy aren't looking. We had to show her how it was done with Uncle Dude as the spray reciprient. I then sprayed some on her finger so she could taste it. She loved the taste but was slightly hesitent on having it sprayed in her mouth. By the end of the night she was an old hat at sprayed whipped cream!
I have been playing catch up with my albums for the grandkids. I've managed to get a few done featuring the newest little one. However, 'playing catch up' is a very common phrase for any scrapbooking. One can never be 'current'; there's alway another page to get done. ;p
Sammy has been suffering from a cold that has hung on for too long. And along with that cold is a nasty cough. She's been very good when reminded to cover her mouth when she coughs.....poor little one.
Daddy has a friend who owns horseys. They took the girls out for a visit and Sammy got to ride one. Each time Sammy gets on a horse, she becomes more comfortable in the activity. This time, she wouldn't stop talking all the time she was on the horse. As Papa says, "someone put a nickle in her".
You know how some parents always pull out embarrassing photos to show off at their kid's 16th birthday of when the kid was a KID? This one should go into that pile. She's quite the fashion plate, isn't she?
As Sammy gets older and understands directions, she has learned that I will show her her photo after I take it on the camera. This time I guess she wanted to give me the 'coy' look. Or see how she looks with only her face showing.
Every six months, the babies get measured in height and Papa and I have a door frame in the kitchen that shows each's growth spurts. Only Olivia doesn't have one yet. October marks Sammy being 2.5 years old and a new label on the door frame. 35.75 inches!!
