Personal Notes:
This is one of Brian's favorites! He ate a lot of cream puffs while 'helping' put the whipped cream in the middle - one for the tray...two for him! He knew Grandma's schedule that Thursday was cream puff making day. He would make sure to stop in to visit that day...and pick up some cream puffs!
