The kids woke up this morning to a huge surprise.
Banoffee Pie was back!
Santa gave Banoffee the day off to come back to Arkansas to visit his three favourite kiddos. He came bearing gifts and mischief.
He brought a heart-shaped box of chocolates for everyone (Scott, Granny and Grampa all included) and a chocolate rose for me (aww). He brought Jaguar a stuffed doggie, Fifi an owl and Lolly a unicorn.
He made us a batch of pink pancakes, and being the cheeky rascal he is, he dyed our gallon of milk pink.
(He made the pancakes on my Pampered Chef Executive Sauté Pan and left some of the pink batter in the fridge in my Pampered Chef Classic Batter Bowl. Lolly, the observant one, noticed this and said, "Banoffee is so clever! He uses Pampered Chef stuff!")
The kids were elated this morning, and utterly surprised. They hugged Banoffee and thanked him for all there presents.
The best part though?
After breakfast, Fifi came running over to me and whispered in my ear, "Thanks, Mum."
My baby girl. Growing up too fast.
