Baking with Nana

So my mom, LOVES being a Grandma! Loves it. Thanks me almost everytime she sees ours girls. Same as my dad. LOVES it! Now Ava and my mom have a strong bond, much like the bond I have with my Grandma, my mom's mom. And Emma has a strong bond with my dad. I really didn't think it would of happened that way, but I'm so happy because it just melts my dad's heart.

As many of you know, my mom is a fantastic baker! And she bakes almost everyday off and it's always something sweet-- much to my desire! :)

Ava and my mom got to bake together for the first time two weekends ago. They baked caramel, pecan sweet buns or rolls, I'm not sure what you would call it. But she makes the bun/roll dough and rolls it out, spreads the caramel out and sprinkles the sticky goodness with buttered pecans. DELICIOUS!!!!

Here are some photos from their baking extravaganza, which Ava did so well in, sporting her little apron courtesy of Nana.

 And they're off!
And the work of my little Ava! Looks good, huh??


  1. Cute! I'm always afraid to cook/bake with kids. Takes too much patience! Maybe that's why I'm not a mom yet...

  2. That's why I was taking pictures. I don't think I have the patience either. My mom was super patient!!!!
