Best Buddies


Quinn and Gilbert rarely are this gently with each other.

She wrote him many impromptu songs while they were resting together. The lyrics to the song are:
Gilbert- Mommy loves you
Daddy thinks you're beautiful
Quinny loves Gilbert 'cause
he need a sister too.

The Cut

Yesterday was the last straw. I was tired of having issues about brushing her hair or how it was going to be styled each day. I love long hair and all of the options that it offers... but not for a 3 yr old. I told Quinn yesterday that if she didn't stop whining about her hair that we were going to get it cut- and I do not make false threats.

I love the short cut. It is simple and sweet. Quinn looks younger to me now and her cheeks couldn't be any bigger but I love it. This morning when she woke up and rolled out of bed, her hair was still cute! (as in no huge tangle in the back or dreads underneath!!!)

Fun in the Kitchen

I have been trying to find more kid friendly dinners recently. When I say "kid friendly" I mean with easy steps to make and something that Quinn will have at least one job to do that is fun. She is a great eater so that makes it easier.

Anyway, I found a recipe for edible bowls for eggs. You use egg roll wrappers and bake them in the oven. You need to spray "butter" on each side of the wrapper and spread it around - that was Quinn's fun job. Then I carefully placed them in a cupcake sheet

Once bowls are baked immediately remove from pan to prevent sticking
While the bowls were baking I made scrambled egg beaters with scallions and cheddar jack cheese.
I think that Quinn was in HEAVEN! She ate 3 of them!

The finished product
Quinn and I just LOVED the little bowls and have been thinking of other things to put in them like veggie fried rice or even make little taco salads!

"We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
and a happy two ear!
Good tight things we bring
to you and your king
Good tight things on Christmas
and a happy two ear"
