Kyle's favourite!

This is one of Kyle's favourite things to do - cook/bake. If he can help in the kitchen, he's all over that. I was hoping that if I got him to help with some things like casseroles with vegetables that he might actually eat that too, but no luck yet! Vegetables are really not his thing!

Chocolate muffins on the other hand...a hit! We practically had a meltdown over this too because I'd sort of told him we could do this if he had a bath, but George didn't know that and when Kyle asked after his bath, Daddy said no because he didn't want him to get all dirty again. I made a deal with Kyle that we could do them as long as he wore the apron that Grandma made him! He agreed and off we went.

I have to admit that we did "cheater" muffins as you can plainly see. I do make them from scratch too, but we get the mix when it's on sale because it's an easy thing to have in case someone drops by or Kyle wants to make something. We had fun and Kyle was happy!

Not too much going on around here today. The little ones are down for their nap/rest, so I'm going to go get a cup of coffee and hang with Kyle! We'll see if we can manage to get out for a bit maybe since it's not pouring rain today! Maybe even just in the backyard since I can't really get the stroller out because the garage door won't go up! There's a spring that we need to get replaced and the place that sells them is only open weekdays!

I'm also going to be participating in a "Scrapper's Amazing Race" challenge over at Transparent Tags and Touches that starts November 3rd, so you might want to go check it out!!

Cheers and have a great day!
