Many years ago Anna received a makeup kit for Christmas. Ethan has always adored his sister, and he has always been jealous of everything she gets. I don't know if adoration or jealously was the root cause of his actions this day, but I found this:
So I'm sorry if the men get all in a tizzy about this picture, but Ethan was only probably 2 years old and the joy on his face just gets me every time. And just for the record, do you see that Tonka truck in the background? He played with that ALL THE TIME. Far more than his sisters makeup.
I don't think the next favorite requires any explanation.
Here we have Anna on her first day of Kindergarten with her teacher, Mrs. Merkle. In case you cannot tell, Anna was a bit nervous.
Here they are again, Anna and Mrs. Merkle. This was on her last day of kindergarten. Obviously, the relationship had blossomed.
I made several more this morning. Rachel and the cousins spent the night with us last night, helping me sort through "stuff". I didn't ask if they might LIKE Pannekoekens, I just told them they must try them. I think they were loved by all. So this is my new favorite breakfast. Easy, yummy, and fun. What more could I want? (Well, a side of bacon or sausage would have been nice. Maybe next time.)
