A Visit from the Grants

     If you follow Lil' Mrs. Tori, then you know Tori and her family are traveling back to California from Florida.  On their way home, they stopped to stay the night with us here in New Mexico.  It was so nice to see all of them, it has been over a year since the last time we saw them!

Best Buds reunited!
Liam and Brendan getting their game on playing Sonic All Stars on the Playstation.

Time for some dinner with friends!

I made some ribs, veggie kabobs, Loaded Baked Potato Salad, and....

Some Batman inspired Chocolate Cream filled Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream.
I tried out the chocolate cupcake recipe from Blissfully Delicious,
the vanilla buttercream from Add a Pinch,
and the cream filling I just whisked up some whipping cream, a Whip It packet, and some sugar.
For the chocolate Batman signal, I melted some Hersey's chocolate, 
put it in a squeeze bottle and drew the symbols on a piece of wax paper, 
then stuck in the freezer to harden. 
Topped it with a #4 candle to celebrate Brendan's birthday!

B was too quick to blow out his candle, we barely got "Happy" 
sung and it was extinguished.

Ryan and Kinley enjoyed playing with each other too.  
I think Kinley liked having someone around her age to play with.

The boys back on their electronics...Liam the Kindle, B on daddy's phone.

The next morning, I made the boys a Turbo Snail Cinnamon Roll 
with some cut apples for breakfast.

I think they liked them!

After breakfast the Grants packed up their van and headed the rest of the way home to Cali.
It was a short visit, but so nice to see them!
Looking forward to reuniting with them again in the future!
Miss you guys!
