I finally peeled myself out of bed this morning when I heard some funny noises coming from down stairs. My firstborn helped me throw on a roast in the crock pot on Monday for dinner, which meant peeling the carrots, and CUTTING them, along with the potatoes and onions. I think all that assistance was too much for her...she no longer wants to be the sou chef! I'm just glad she decided to use a butter knife instead of one of my really sharp Wusthof knifes.
Maddox has been so stinkin' cute these days, I just had to snap a shot of him this morning. He has been playing the role of Bashful from the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs lately. And it as landed him the spotlight on a few occasions...
Then moving onto the next little mess, Bryanna just doesn't think I'm fast enough to help get her little arts & crafts going these days! Again, I have a feeling she is growing up faster than I think she is. Somehow she found where I put the paint and got into it. I'm grateful that she wasn't wearing anything too special, unless you count your birthday suit and whitey tighties as special?
She actually did a pretty good job and didn't spill AND stayed pretty much in the lines. The first time we did this fun little project I hoovered over her shoulder watching EVERY MOVE!
I snapped this a few weeks ago when out of the blue, daddy and daughter snuggled on the couch and read a book...it was too good to pass up evidence that Mark occasionally DOES read to our kids:)
We finally have barstools in my kitchen now. I found these babies at Sam's Club! Style for not a lot of dough! It is fun to make these purchases because they are so PREMEDITATED, the anticipation is half the excitement!
We actually eat in the kitchen now instead of at the couch...on my list next is a bigger dining room table that seats more than four!!
