Carson the Cook

I've decided this week that I haven't done a good job at teaching the kids to cook. I usually ask them to help out, but it goes in spurts. Sometimes it's just easier, calmer, less messy, (did I say easier?) to do it myself. I broke down though and decided this week, to assign each of the kids a day to cook dinner. Carson made breadsticks today -- from scratch! Now, a smart mom would've started out with something like Kraft Mac&Cheese. What was I thinking?!
I think more flour got on the counter than in the bowl!

You ARE brave! He is so cute though.

Hey - I was wanting to know the answer to the last poll? Why your dad had all that money??? My vote was because the bill was cheaper than you thought it was going to be.

That was it! You were right! The bill ended up being quite a bit less than what we thought! My dad felt it was a small miracle!

Carson is soo cute and you are soo brave. I am glad to hear I am not the only one that does things in "spurts" ... one week I think I am doing pretty good and then the next week forget it!

Hey Vanessa! Marcie told me she found your blog. I can't believe how your kids have grown. You have a very beautiful family. It's amazing how time flies! Tanessa was excited to see pictures of Cali. She wonders about her ever so often and she is as excited as I am when your Christmas card comes every year! Our blog is thehansentimes.blogspot.com
Take care!

I have totally slacked off with "letting" the kids help with dinners! Can Carson come over and teach us how to make breadsticks?
