not only does this chica love more food than i ever thought a 3 year old could, but she taught herself how to use chopsticks!
after discovering ready made pie crusts, i think i baked 3 pies in three days. one night, jon was bathing kiddos after dinner and came down when he was done to find one said pie oven ready. he then exclaimed, "pie?!? you made a pie since i've been upstairs? you've been holding out on me!"
i REALLY like being an aunt. little dude can't have eggs, so i gave him the frosting whisk while the other kiddos were downing cake batter
we've had lots of day trips lately. one day we ended up at the Y. we started at the duck pond and then our awesome kiddos ended up hiking the whole campus...from the duck pond to the wilk to the creamery on 9th, past jon's old dorm room, all the way to the bean museum. i think we were in shock about how well they did. jon wanted to take a pic in front of his old dorm with all the kiddos...a little more than 10 years and almost 5 kiddos later...crazy stuff man
i got a mandoline for my birthday and this was one of the first times i used it. i'm embarrased to admit how happy it made me to have these taters sliced so uniformly thin. i know, i'm weird.
