Lately our days have not been too busy and have therefore been absolutely lovely.
Last week we made homemade donuts at 11:00 AM because my friend had some leftover dough from the evening before. It may not have been such a good idea to leave me and Z-cakes in the house alone with a pan full of donuts, but I promise Nate got a couple.
On Saturday we enjoyed fresh squeezed orange juice with our whole wheat pancakes reminding me, once again, that most of my happiest moments revolve around really good food.
Z-cakes obviously gets cuter by the day. She got herself all dressed up to play "grocery store" outside and I was mighty proud of her ensemble. Another favorite game these days is "book lady" in which she brings a handful of books to me, I tell her how much they cost, she gives me pretend money and is on her way, never batting an eye at the cost. She may or may not have learned this from someone you know.
Okay, but food and toddler clothes aside, here is the biggest news of the week: Z-cakes' hair in PIGTAILS!
I kind of feel like four years of hair growth has all been leading up to this point. You know?
Yesterday was in the 50s. Dudes. Today is cold and windy but yesterday was in the 50s. We headed to the park and flew kites with a slew of other kids who for some reason were not in school. I brought my camera, but was having way to much fun to stop and take a pic.
We made this on Sunday night and I wanted to eat the entire thing by myself. I saved a piece to take a picture of on Monday morning like a good blogger but instead, I just ate it. In like, two bites. It occurred to me later that perhaps I should have savored it. Not to worry though, the ingredients for another are sitting in my fridge right now. It is only a matter of time, my friends.
