The little one and the dog waited patiently for me to prepare it. I promised them each a taste!
The finished product looks great but we discovered it is best if you just lick the cheesecake part off the crust and throw the crust away!
The crust was just too dry and crunchy for our taste. Cheesecake deserves a better crust!
In other news our neighbors brought these over for the little one! So sweet! I just love the embroidery! It is hard to tell from the picture but the blue towel is embroidered with brown thread which just looks so nice together.
We have a really nice couple who live behind us, their kids are grown and live a few hours from here. They love to visit Evelyn because their grand kids live so far away and they don't see them very often. She makes a good substitute grand baby for them!
That's all for now! Happy Friday!

Even the little one decided to help me. Here she is sorting the hangers for me!
Three hours later the closet is pristine. Clothing is now sorted by type and color, and I am even giving the Oprah trick another try. I was watching Oprah one day when they had a show on keeping yourself organized and they said to turn your hangers all around then wait a few weeks and see what still has the hanger turned around. It is an easy way to know what you are actually wearing. This really works, I tested it on hubby a while back.
On to the next topic... I found myself doing something today that I thought I would never do... I bought my kid this...
I am hoping that this is a phase but knowing how picky I was as a kid I'm guessing this is only the beginning.

Their recipe also called for vanilla pudding not banana cream but I neglected to read that part of the recipe. I assumed that for banana pudding you would use the banana flavor but oh well!
Halfway prepared! Looking yummy already!
The finished product...
I ran out of whole cookies so I just sprinkled the crumbled ones on top. It didn't win the beauty contest but at our house its the taste that matters!

Looks like the cake decorator may have been tipsy though! Sort of how sister, bro in law and I were after hitting the bar for a few games of pool!
Here is Grandma and the little one soaking up some end of day sunshine.
It was great to see the family but nice to get back home in time for the holiday weekend, grandma gifted the little one a special 4th of July outfit so keep an eye out for the pics!
