Kids and Chocolate Strawberries

My daughter and granddaughter came to visit me recently and we had a "kicking" time together. We were obnoxious, stayed up late and talked and ate tooooo much junk. Chocolate strawberries, donuts, cake........uuuuhhhhh, you know the drill, right?!! AND you know you're in trouble when you make an emergency run to the local Chevron station/convenience store for candy and end up spending $14.97 for just candy to get ya through the evening! Sheeeeeesh........

This is my daughter. She looks just like me but she'd probably croak if she saw it in print! Well, not really just like me as she's 5"11 and I'm 5'4 3/4" and have gray mixed in with my light brown, more wrinkles and have curly hair - thanks to perms! We snapped this picture in WM and I'll probably never be invited back to that store from being so giggly and obnoxious in there. *Sigh*........ But I think this is an adorable picture of her! Isn't she cute for "29"?!?!

This is my granddaughter a few years ago.

This is her today while we were canvassing for goodies at the local nursery. I thought the picture of her in that lime green sun hat turned out darling of her and being a proud grandmother of only 1 granddaughter (but 3 grandsons) I could show her off a bit. Isn't she cute for "29"?!?! And SHE is 29 in March. Hah. Daughter and I lie about our ages although it's getting harder with my wrinkles! My gorgeous daughter has no wrinkles! *Sigh*..........

This is her hair I photographed while waiting at the beauty salon for her mother to get hers colored and cut. She has been coming up about every 3 months to get her hair cut and colored here because she likes my hairdresser.

So far we've gone to the store 3 times to get things for ONE (1) meal! I never knew beef stroganoff could be so difficult to make from scratch, but when daughter says she wants to cook for us then I'm in heaven, chicks! So she'll get no guff from me on that one.

But she also grabbed 2 packs of strawberries and 2 bags of milk chocolate chips to make these for dessert. Ooooooh, I sure hope my pants can expand a little on this menu! Do these look good or what?!?!
