Happy 2014!

It’s nearing the first evening of 2014 and we are having LEFTOVERS for dinner! We made lentil soup last night- mostly because I love lentil soup, but also because eating lentils on New Year’s Eve is supposed to bring good luck! I’m assuming that eating it the next day brings even more good luck.  I’m hoping to really get back into the swing of things as far as updating this blog and sharing recipes and pictures. Our oldest, who is now 6, got a really neat Discovery Kids baking set and loves being in the kitchen as much as ever. Our youngest, who is 20 months, loves doing whatever her oldest sister does so she is often in the kitchen helping in whatever way she can.

I adore spending time with my girls, sometimes at the expense of doing anything else. The time goes too fast and I don’t want to look back wishing I spent more time with them.  I love that they are interested in something that will serve them for a lifetime! So, when the 6 year old recommends having a cookie contest or the 1 year old wants to stir the cake mix I smile and let it happen 🙂
