The Energy of a "Soon" Three-Year-Old

I admit that I haven't been reading my blogroll much this week.  Matter of fact, I haven't had much time to even get online ... when I have, it's just been to check messages, see what's happening on Facebook, and not even remembering I have a Twitter that I rarely have updated.  Oh yeah, and very little time on Pinterest.  This has been a week of keeping up with the energy of a soon-to-be 3 year old. 


This week has found this stylin' toddler busy and on-the-go (and Granny trying to keep up with her)!  With her Daddy being out-of-town and Granddad at work, Lucy had to hold down the fort at home ... translated that means it was an all girls week at home!  And we had a very busy agenda ... 

 
Breakfast at "Old Mac-Donald's Farm" was followed by ... 


 
A quick visit to Granddad's office (where Lucy is the #1 consultant!)

But Lucy isn't just a high-demand consultant and food critic.  Oh no ... this little bundle of energy is also a prize-winning chef.  This week's menu included banana bread mini-muffins, brownie mini-muffins and ...

      PIZZA!!!!!

This little toddler sure knows her way around the kitchen!  Hardly any muffins are left in the pantry, and the pizza was ... well, it was the most delicious pizza that Granddad has EVER eaten!!! And let me say, Granddad is a pizza connoisseur ... and he says "Hands down, Lucy's pizza is the best pizza EVER!"

So, now the week brings us to today, Saturday.  Mommy & little Baby Valentine needed to rest some, so Lucy took Granny & Granddad to one of her absolute favorite places.  Can you guess where we went?


Yes, Lucy LOVES Cracker Barrel!  This was THE perfect Saturday morning to visit our favorite from last summer.  For some reason this summer just hasn't offered the opportunities for us to take Lucy to Cracker Barrel like we did last year.  But, she had a blast this morning!  And there will be many more Saturday mornings at CB for the 3 of us. This is what Lucy enjoys after eating eggs and pancakes ... 

 
Nothing like a game of checkers to relax after such a great breakfast.


To end the day, Granddad had another surprise for all of us girls ... 


Sweet Frog!  If you don't have one near you, hopefully you'll get one soon.  It's soft serve frozen yogurt that is self-serve ... you grab a cup, pick out your flavor(s) and toppings, then weigh it, pay for it and indulge.  What a great treat at the end of the day ... and at the end of such a great week!

So, as you can see, Lucy has kept her ol' Granny pretty busy week.  And Granny wouldn't have it any other way!  I hope you've had as great a week as I have. 
God is definitely good ALL the time ... and I am blessed.

Sweet times with such an adorable little one! We love Cracker Barrel too. It's on the list for one of these mornings before school starts again. The one we go to is right by all the outlet stores.....my favorite kind of shopping =)

Have a great day!
