Happy Birthday, Abby (the best babysitter in the world)!

Abby was born February 24, 1994.  She is our babysitter.  She also just happens to be the best babysitter in the world.

She reads stories.  She plays games outside and in.  She feeds the kids snack and  cleans up the mess they make under the table.  She is homeschooled so she is available during the day (when she is not taking college chemistry!).  She has told me I pay her too much.  She is sweet and kind and patient and loves my kids and my kids love her.  I bet we'd have to ask her mother to find out that she is not perfect.  But even if she isn't, I would be very blessed to have my daughter grow up to be like her.  Speaking of her mom, she is the best babysitter's mother in the world in that she almost always drops her off and picks her up even on super short notice.

During her non-babysitting hours, she is a very creative cake decorator.  I ordered a Wall-E cake for Sam's birthday, and she not only baked it, but brought it and all her gear to my house so that Jonah could help her decorate it.  Oh and it was delicious!!!!!   But, not even her best work.  Scroll down for more pictures of her creations (Which I stole off her facebook page.  I hope she does not mind.)

Those mushrooms are made out of meringue.  Can you believe that?

Happy Sweet 16 Abby!!!!!!


  1. She's a wonder, and applying that college chemistry very effectively to food colouring, bless her. Lucky you to have found so good a helper.

  2. I used to have a wonderful babysitter, too, though she never told me I paid her too much. I'll be watching for Abby on the Food Network.

  3. LOL. I had an Alina when Daniel was a baby. Now I'd kill for an Alina or Abby. ;) Does Abby do ice cream cakes? If so, I might want to pay her to make one for Isabel's bday. If not, I can definitely use her for Daniel's next bday. :D

  4. I don't think she does ice cream, but honestly, I do not know.

  5. Wow, You have Darlene Conner as a babysitter.

  6. Ok - does she fancy a free trip to England?

    P.S. I've tagged you over at my blog.
