With two football games on and a few household chores to do, Rachel has been pretty ingenious at keeping the kids occupied.
Here they are set up in the kitchen with all of the necessary ingredients for make-believe cooking:
1 wooden orange
1/2 of a wooden onion
2 real limes
1 Stainless steel whisk
A few wooden blocks they use as spices...
...and voila: Jude and indi whipped up dinner for us. They each insist on wearing aprons (Jude wears the manly green one). Three minutes and a few pictures later they were bored... and off to creating havoc in a different part of the house.
On another note, our good friends Chris and Dell were over this weekend for dinner and Dell (a world class pianist) sat down with Jude at the piano and they sang through at least a dozen songs. Then Dell patiently read him bed time stories for something like 45 minutes.
[Rachel comment: We heart Dell!]
