Cooking Lessons

My wonderful niece, Jessie, is here for the week! We are so enjoying spending time with her! The boys are her biggest fans, I am sure! This week I am giving Jess some cooking lessons. She loves to cook, and it is so fun making yummy recipes with her to take home and wow her family! Of course, while she is here, she is having to put up with three little "helpers", but she is a great sport about it!
Noah and Jonah helping out.

Caleb helped crack an egg and peal bananas.

Jessie hard at work!

The finished product! HoneyWheat Banana Muffins! YUMMY! (This is one of my kids FAVORITES!)

The chef should be SO proud!

Snuggle Bug

When tucking Jonah (3) in last night:

Jonah (scooting over as far as he can): Mama, there is space here! Come snuggle me for 3 weeks.

Daddy's Big Helper

All of the boys love to help Daddy, but recently, Jonah has shown a big interest in helping Daddy do just about everything!
Helping Daddy fix the bench to the table.
Using the tools that Grammy gave to the boys. They just LOVE having their own tools!

Helping Daddy mow the lawn!
Before we know it, he'll be complaining about having to do this! We are enjoying this phase when it is novel and fun!
(Thanks to Grammy, they have a toy mower now, too... Jonah is also the one who likes to play with that more than the other boys... What a Big HELPER he is!)

A Few Of His Favorite Things...

Yesterday, Caleb (5) looked at me and said:

Mommy, I love the beach, Christmas, and Disneyland.

On Fairytales...

Jonah (3): Mommy, you are princess. Jonah is prince.

And my heart melts.
