Cookin' Calli

It is a day off school and so the kids and I had a wonderful day off together. This morning, I came down stairs and this is what I saw...Calli in her footie pajamas, on the counter, peeking in the cupboard looking for the food coloring so that she could make blue pancakes for breakfast (because it is January of coarse!). Sunday, I vaguely remember her coming into the room when I was just between awake and asleep, for my long Sunday nap, to ask us if she could make truffles. All I remember is thinking -no way! I have never even made truffles- and hearing Jeff say-"as long as we have all of the ingredients for them you can" (she has started many things before and found that we were missing an ingredient). She loves to cook and bake and I am just so glad that kids pick some things up on their own without having to have a gene from a parent. She does an amazing job. I was scared to try the truffles-but they were delicious!!!!! (I opted out on the blue pancakes)
