A cute cookbook...

Several blogging friends have emailed and ask me how
DEEDS got her name...
She is our very youngest granddaughter that we are trying,
with all our mite, to keep little for a lot longer and it isn't working !!!;(
*
......a mighty cute NICKNAME...



I am so so HAPPY that she
hangs her hats at MEMAW'S house...
*
I won this adorable COOKBOOK from the sweet, HOLLY.
She lives at 504 Main
and has such a CUTE blog..
She showcases other bloggers and their cuteness.
Be sure to go over and say hi to HOLLY..and would you tell her bj said HEY ?

KITCHEN PLAYDATES....
*
I showed it to DEEDS when she was here this last weekend...
We went thru it together, picking out some great
recipes that we could make....TOGETHER...
don't know about YOU but I love those TOGETHER TIMES...
*
After a little while, she called me back into the kitchen.....
*


...and I said,
"HEY...you sure can...give me a bite and let's see how well you did."
She grinned from EAR to EAR and we ate the WHOLE THING...

*********************************************************************************
THANKS so much, HOLLY.
We'll have fun, cooking, baking and playing together with this awesome book.

I have been using the NEWER editor to post...
It is about to drive me N.U.T.S.
I am pulling my silver hair right out of my head..
My photos are moving all over the place..
We ALL need to start using it so we can get used to it because...
THEY ARE TAKING AWAY THE OLD EDITOR...bwaaaaaaa...
I just HATE change...is it a senior thing ??

These stories of your special times with grandchildren make me look forward to some day having some little grands of my own! Deeds sounds like such a precious little girl and I can see how much she loves you and Mr. Sweet. What a gift from God to have the love of little ones:>)

Cute, and I'll bet they were great! I noticed the new "add picture" thingy too... Guess they have to keep us on our toes:@)

Ann said...

What a precious nickname, how glorious she can hang her hats at your place.Ann

Marla @ Always Nesting said...

Oh, my gosh that is just the cutest. Well, of course she can make strawberries and whipped cream! Love this.

CHERI said...

My grandson used to love to cook with me but I think he's growing out of it. But Granddaughter M loves it now. They both like to crack the eggs...that seems to be the most fun. I have several posts about some of the things we've cooked up. My DIL cooks VERY little so hopefully the two grands will learn from me!

Sarah said...

BJ, love the nickname Deeds. and Deirdre is the name of one of my former students who is very dear to my heart. She spells her name differently.

Musings From A French Cottage said...

They look amazing! She did a wonderful job on those strawberries with cream!

Enjoy your weekend!!

Kathleen

Midlife Mom said...

Oh how I love those special times with my grand kids too!!! We made a double batch of molasses cookies yesterday and I had bought new fall cookie cutters so they had a blast with them! Of course I took pictures that will appear in my blog at some point........ :o) I'm with you, I wish they would stay little longer, sigh..... xoxoxo

Theresa said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear BJ.

Your family must adore you. You are such a sweetheart.

I love the quote "If I had known how much fun it is to have grandchildren, I would have had them first". Mine are growing up so fast and the milestones are posted on the growth chart on my wall. Your little one sounds darling, enjoy every minute with her.

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Your Grand is a smart cutie-pie! Contriving recipes, already. :-)

Yeah, I hate CHANGE too! Sure wish Blogger would tell us WHEN they are taking away our OLD Editor. If you look in Blogger Help, it looks like they've been "threatening" this, for a long time. Do you see that too????

I tried to use it yesterday, and gave up on putting a pic into a post. :-( Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Come to think of it, maybe they shouldn't be messin' with "Sweet Aunt Bridget"...
>,-)

Special times with grandchildren and the best! I love each and every one I get. Right now I am blessed with a long visit from our 20 year old Texas granddaughter taking a breather from college.

I love how nick names came to be...we have some funny ones in our family...Beannie for Hannah, Bear of Alexandra, Pico for Travis and the list marches on...

Yes, I do love roses! I guess it shows lol!
Hugs,
Jil

Debbie said...

I tell ya, you are living my dream!! I so hope and pray that I get to have such fun times one day. Deeds sounds like the granddaughter that lives in my heart and head.

Cute grand daughter and I love her name.

Happy Pink Saturday.

LV said...

Nothing can ever replace the quality time spent with this child. I loved hearing about her cooking experience.

Rebecca said...

Oh BJ..Loved reading about Deeds and I love her nickname. Original and sooo sweet!

I just have the one grandchild...my darling Miss K. She will be 8 in November and I'm thinking she will be our only one for at least another two years. She steals my heart away and I'm blessed by her more than I can say!

I feel your grandma love my friend. I can tell you my grandmother changed my very life. I can only HOPE to have such a profound influence on the grandchild God sends our way. I sure can tell you are loved.

Blessings to you this PINK SATURDAY! Hope your day is wonderful!

Susie Jefferson said...

Change is definitely an age thing... I think we still love being spontaneous - but in a controlled way, lol.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Kathleen said...

It is wonderful your grands are so close and share so much of their lives with you! ♥

Marina Capano said...

What a precious nickname!
great post!

Happy pink saturday!

Life on the Edge said...

I thought that Deeds was a nickname! And what a sweet, precious granddaughter she is.

So they are changing our editor for blogs? Argh! Why don't they leave well enough alone? lol

Guess I will have to just adapt to change after all.

BJ, I've wondered about the name "Deeds" too. What a cute nickname. Love your artistic picture of hats on the rack. Congratulations on your cookbook win. Looks like it will be fun, even though you've already done past the strawberries and cream!! Cute! Thank you so much for linking to Favorite Things Sat. laurie

Donnie said...

Being a grandmother too appreciate your lovely comments. So sweet. I also can't stand the new photo feature. I just get used to one way and they change it...aaarghhh..Happy Pink Saturday.

Happy Pink Saturday Thank you for sharing...Health,Wealth and Love..

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Ok..well I would have dropped in and told her that "bj" says "Hey!" but...you didn't leave a link that I could find..so..I couldn't..

Dern the luck!!
All Granddaughters should hang their hats at their Grandmothers house from time to time...say..every day??? :)

That is indeed a cute name!

The Tablescaper said...

I don't blame you for wanting to keep her little for as long as possible. It's not working for me either. I love the title of that book. I may have to add that to my bag of tricks.

Thanks so much for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

Brenda Kula said...

I too was wondering where she got the name. I've never used the old editor, I don't think. So I'm fairly well use to this one. What are you having problems with?
Brenda

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Now see??? I told you what happened to me and it seems it is now getting to you...HOW I suffered with the change.
A senior thing...oh, bj, who cares. It drove me crazy! Ok..so it's a senior thing. LOL

Barbara Jean said...

OH MY GOSH! They are taking away the old blogger?? I tired the new one when it came out and could not do a thing with it.

Let's see, I do vaguely remember getting a letter from blogger. Guess I better go read it.

No it's not a senior thing. I am only 62, and I do not like change either. (Unless it is a change I want.) =)

hugs and blessings

Barbara Jean said...

PS too cute post about your granddaughter and the strawberries.

Sue said...

Deeds is an absolutely adorable nick-name. How fun to have such special times together, BJ.
I don't use blogger to post, so I have no clue what all the hoopla is about. I guess I could go check it out just in case Windows Live Writer goes blooey on me! But I absolutely love using Writer- haven't used blogger for over a year. It's so much easier and I have so many more options.

Natasha said...

I am a big fan of Holly's too. She is lovely. What a great prize!

I have been using the new editor for a few months now and find it really easy to work with. It is blogger itself that is a pain in the proverbial!!!Some days on blogger I am ready to give up and move over to wordpress but I shall persevere...

Happy blogging sweet BJ.

Natasha.
