Breakfast Time

Every Saturday (well, at least for the past TWO weeks) I have been devoting time to teaching Anna to cook breakfast. In fact, I let her choose whatever she wants and I'll teach/help her to make it. Last week was strawberry crepes (ambitious girl!) and this week she wanted Mickey Mouse Pancakes. It was a family affair, as both Keith & Kristina were right there "helping" Tyler unload the dishes and set the table while Anna made the pancakes - complete with chocolate chips for the faces.


Anna's creation. She decided that it was really Minnie Mouse Pancakes, since she put whip cream hairbows on it. Yummy!


Here are my 3 little helpers!


I want to thank you for all of your motivational and kind words. I am feeling MUCH better now. I think I was having a hard time because I was going to bed late and getting up early. Now I am making myself get to bed earlier and I feel great! It's amazing what a little extra sleep can do! :o)

Those pancakes look yummy. Anna is lucky to have a great mom to teach her how to cook.

Sleep definitely helps!! I used to nap at the same time as the boys when they were first home--the transition was exhausting for all of us!
