Emily came prepared with some "Shopkins" (her new obsession) and her Barbie, who apparently shops for the Shopkins.
But first we helped Pepere finish his puzzle.
Emily really enjoyed hearing Pepere tell the story of the Beatles and the Yellow Submarine.
Then Emily showed me the Shopkins webpage on the computer
and we watched a couple of short Shopkin videoes.
Then we went upstairs into Memere's art room where Emily showed us how to make pop-up cards. She made me a purple penguin because she knows I love purple...and penguins!
Then I reminded Emily that she gave me a Poppin' Penguin game for my birthday and we never really got to play it. We played two games and Emily and I each won one. Pepere did not win any.
Emily takes delight in knocking my penguin out and sending me back to the start.
Then downstairs to make some chocolate chip cookies. She asked to crack the eggs, then reminded me that I was the one who taught her how to crack eggs! My heart just melted! She even got to use the electric mixer....and lick the batter off!
Enjoying the cookies of our labor
Finally she got to play in Pepere's room with her Shopkins and my penguins.
We had a wonderful time with our sweet, beautiful, energetic, imaginative granddaughter. Thanks Emily!
