Garen has started to forgo the naps a few days a week and when he does take one, I just hear him play in his room for about an hour and then find him sleeping by the door, in the rocking chair, or in the middle of the room. I am so not ready to give up his nap time, but I'm afraid that it is coming soon!
So this is how I find Garen during nap time these days, anywhere but his bed and surrounded by toys-
Also thank you to Jann and Boyd from Maddie and Garen for the dollar bills. We went to the dollar store today so they could pick what they wanted and buy it themselves. They were both very excited about their choices! Maddie is really loving these opportunities to use her own money and to count it out for the cashier. She's getting pretty good at counting coins. Then she keeps her receipts in her purse for weeks.
Maddie got a ball shooting gun-
And Garen picked a monster truck that jumps-
And for you girls that asked for the cake recipe, you are not going to believe how easy it is!
-Just use a cake mix (white or yellow) to make two 9 inch round cakes.
-put vanilla pudding and defrosted frozen strawberries or fresh strawberries between the two cakes.
-cover the whole thing with cool whip
-Then put fresh cut up strawberries on top and all around
-you can also drizzle some strawberry sauce from the frozen strawberries on top.
And that is it!!! Easy and delicious.
