Three things to make you smile

1) Heard from the backseat this morning...."Hi puppy! Hi!". I turned to see what John could possibly be seeing that I was not to observe my baby peeking down his jacket greeting the puppy on his tee shirt.

2) Helpful, but directionally challenged....A bag of goodies I received from a student for Easter tipped over in the backseat on the way home. Elijah wanted to make sure I got all the pieces picked up. As I am blindly groping about he decided to lend a hand. "To your left Mom, by your pinkie." It was to the right but I love the idea.
3) Who doesn't smile at a bathtub picture.....

What's For Dinner?

Elijah loves to ask about our evening's cuisine and then give a critique. For a few months Chris and I have responded with, "We're have rutabaga!", to which he would respond with a sour face. I decided it was high time we tried this mysterious root vegetable. Here is the picture story.This is what a raw rutabaga looks like.
This is what a peeled rutabaga looks like.
"Hey Elijah, I dare you to take a bite!"
Cooked rutabaga
First bite....
Not bad!
No, not so much.
