The granddaughters came bounding in with good cheer and anticipation of a second breakfast pretty early this morning. I still had my PJs on and just started my second cup of coffee. Sweet greetings first thing this Friday morning.
Grandma’s, at least this one are generally good for food without strings! We had a discussion to decide…pancakes or waffles.
These girls love to help and actually are learning enough so they are a help!
I needed my second cup first.
They prefer whipped cream over syrup and always have sprinkles any day of the week! Today they topped their waffles with butter and red and green sprinkles. I’m out of the fun colors! They were shocked!!
And just so you know,
nuthin’s finer than breakfast in my kitchen
with my darlin’ grands!!
