Happy Birthday Grandpa

Goodness it's been a while since I have visited the old blog...let's see if I still know how :)

Olivia and I made a cake for Grandpa Andy today. It was an adventure!

She did great with the mixing and scraping
While we were waiting for the cake to bake and cool Olivia made Grandpa a card
Proud of her work
Once the cake cooled it was time for frosting...Grammy had some reservations but went ahead anyway
She took the job very seriously and it's going pretty well
Still not too bad --only a few crumbs in the frosting :)
Getting kind of scary
Not sure there is any hope
Best quote of the day...At this point Olivia looked at me and said, "I think this looks LOVELY...grandpa Andy will LOVE it!"
A little sprinkles cover a multitude of frosting sins :)
Grandpa Andy happened to call about this point in the story. The conversation went something like this-- Olivia: "You must come home soon because we are planning a surprise party" Grandpa: "For who?" Olivia: "You" (insert adorable giggling)

After supper it's time for two little girls to put in the candles
Ella's went in a little deep
All in a row
Looks pretty good a lit up
Time to make a wish and blow --I bet he's wishing for more evenings just like this one
The day ended with Olivia and Grandpa dancing after supper along with lots of other silliness
A pretty successful "not so surprising" surprise party!
