Bippity Boppity Boo

Today was shopping day for our granddaughter's 4th birthday. I usually have her gift earlier than this but this year she wants a slide that goes round and round – in other words, a turbo tube slide. Therefore, PaPa was in charge of the purchase. Since the tube slides are a minimum of $400 for the slide only no platform, no ladder, no lumber included – she will be getting a speedwave instead. It mounts about 7 feet high so that should thrill her. Lest you think I’m a careless Grammy for getting something so high up, it has fairly high sides, basically cradles the child and hold up to 270 pounds.

Also, for her birthday, I will be making and decorating her cake (#4). Her first birthday was a duck in a bathtub (orange cake bathtub and lemon pound cake duck). Birthday #2 was Rainbow Bear (chocolate fudge cake). #3 birthday was Strawberry Shortcake (homemade strawberry cake) and this year, #4 is Cinderella, and its another Strawberry cake. It will be Bippity Boppity Boo and all the trimmings !

With the all of this in mind, I had better get busy ready instructions on icing, color and decorating tips.

Life at the parsonage … studious.
