Cookies, Peppers, and Ice Cream

No, I'm not pregnant.............just to clarify!

One random night, Trevor decided to make chocolate chip cookies. He then had the BRILLIANT idea to have Declan help him. Seriously, I don't know why we waited so long to experience this. Not that it was amazingly spectacular, but it was fun and good for Declan to help out and interact with us in the kitchen. We did this once a long time ago, but he was too young then to really do anything. This time he really got involved in almost every step. He's getting so big it's crazy!

P.S. The faces Declan makes in this post actually are amazingly spectacular!!!

So excited for cookies!!

Trying to help me with the eggs....hmm, not that easy!

Mmmmmm, chocolate chips.......



Stir crazy!

Abby's here too!

Sitting in the big girl chair!

Sadly, I did not get any pictures of him enjoying the cookies. Fail. But they were thoroughly enjoyed, I can assure you! :)

Then, a couple nights ago, while we were preparing dinner, Trevor thought he'd include Dec again. Onions and peppers needed to be chopped....don't worry, Trev did not subject Dec to chopping onions. :)

Declan is not always the best eater. Bribery is often used, and that night it was ice cream. I seriously love the chocolate on his mouth. It's very Spaniard/pirate looking!

You can almost hear in your head what it looks like he's saying:
"Heh heh....heh...."

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

I don't know how I keep missing your blog posts. Hmm? I love cooking with the girls....Charlotte enjoys it way more than Maddie so usually she is my helper. It's amazing how much they are actually able to do. Good job on not having Declan do onions.....Charlotte sat next to me one night while I was chopping them and even just being near by made her eyes water lol. No good. I can't believe how grown up Dec is looking!! Oh, my.
