My Big Girl

For Valentine's Day Kaitlyn and I made rice crispy treats for Daddy. I forgot all about rice crispy treats! What a simple, fun cooking project that can be decorated especially for any occasion!
Kaitlyn was very proud of her creation, which she calls "a cake." She is continuously asking if she can help me in the kitchen. Don't get me wrong, I love her eagerness to help and she is turning into quite the domestic goddess at home, but sometimes she helps a little too much for Mommy. :) Like when I am sorting laundry and a navy blue sock ends up in with the whites. Anyway, although I don't completely boycott Valentine's Day I don't need a special day of the year to tell my husband or my children that I love them. I tell them, and show them, everyday. The commercialism of it all just bothers me. However, for Valentine's Day Ben got Kaitlyn, unbeknownst to me, a little cooking set from Pampered Chef. (Thanks Rachel!) It is so adorable that I forgot all about my Vday gripes and was immediately thrilled. And my gift wasn't shabby either. (The man knows how to buys gifts I tell ya, but that's a different post for a different day.) The set included an apron, chef's hat, measuring cups, "cookie cutters," and some recipe cards with all the different things you can do with them. Tonight for dinner we are making heart shaped grilled ham and cheese sandwiches. So here are some pictures of my big girl with her sweet Valentine's Day creation, complete with chef's hat, an apron, and a huge smile! Sending love to you all!
