Jill was in rare form today! Scott was changing the kiddos diapers after their nap while I was getting them some juice and then I heard "Jilly no! Amanda you gotta see this!" Then I see Jill running down the hall with a package of graham crackers in one hand and a half eaten graham cracker in the other laughing. Apparently little Miss was digging through the diaper bag and found the opened package of graham crackers, gave one to her brother and then took off down the hall. To make matters worse she was so proud of herself that I had to video it, which probably makes her think it was ok...sigh.... but first here is Aaron savoring his stolen graham cracker...
The little princess also learned how to sit on her chairs from the table and chairs that Busia and DziaDzio bought the kiddos for their birthday. Again, she was super proud of herself so we had to take a million photos! She was even nice enough to read to Aaron, at least I think she was reading to him, but chances are she was looking in the mirror at herself.
Here is the video of the little miss in action today....
And then tonight I made the kiddos some warm cinnamon apples! They were a HUGE hit with the little and big kids (mainly Scott). Plus, they were super easy to make and took me no time whatsoever! Here's the recipe...
What you need:
4 McIntosh, Gala, Rome or Granny Smith Apples peeled and sliced
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons of water
1 tablespoon of butter
How you make it:
Mix the first 4 ingredients in a baggie so you coat all the apples
Cook the apple mixture in a saucepan with the water and butter over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until the apples are tender.
This is what you end up with:
Scott described it as "apple pie without the crust".
That's about it for today, hope you had a great Monday! If you get a chance visit MckMama's blog, Stellan is not doing well and they could use all the prayers they can get!
