These are not the best pictures as far as color and lighting, but they mean a great deal to me. In our family, my husband loves to cook. He is never quite as happy as when he is cooking up something enjoyable in the kitchen. Each of the little girls have learned to cook at his side. Anya is now old enough to start to help in the kitchen. She was especially interested in learning to make cinnamon rolls. A wonderful morning of learning and fun between the two of them was ample reward for me to watch and love, (of course, cinnamon rolls for breakfast might have had something to do with it too!).
