On Thursday evening us girls did a bit of scrapping. We needed to make Birthday cards for Ben. (It was his Birthday on Friday.)
Then Andrea made Ben a chocolate cake...His favorite! Yes, she turned the oven on in 100+ heat. Yes, that was at night time! No, that does not include the heat index! (Did you hear NYC is having a heat wave? Sure wish it would wave on out to the ocean!) Elaine and I frosted it the next morning and we put the cake in the fridge all day…Ben likes it cold.
Being a good Grandma and following the advice I read everywhere “to sugar up the grandkid”), I showed Elaine to stick her finger in the frosting and lick it off!
We quickly graduated to the spoon!
Andrea and I also walked up around the corner to get some balloons and candles at the dollar store. I wished I had a way to measure the heat coming off of the houses. And the little shop did not even have a fan blowing! I could not believe it! Sweltering!! Well, let's get onto the Birthday Party. That is more my kind of a “hot time!!”
