Helping Mama bake and Happy Thanksgiving!

After lunch today, I started my Thanksgiving baking. I made 2 loaves of Pumpkin Bread and 1 Pecan Pie. YUM! I've been letting the girlies run around the house or watch PBS Kids TV shows after lunch. Today, I did the same. Well, the girlies must have thought I needed some "assistance" in my baking because they hung out in the kitchen with me the entire time. They enjoyed opening up a row of my lower cabinets. I think they pulled out my steamer/rice cooker, a pancake mix dispenser from Grandpa Carlson, some round containers from an icee maker and my cookie cutters. Ha! They were too cute! Did I get flustered with them running around, pulling things out and scattering cooking items here and there? Nope (that surprises me because I usually don't like chaos when I cook ;) ). They were my 4 cute little sous chefs :D

Such cute helpers! Your blog was recommended to me through Google Reader so I thought I'd check it out-- and then I noticed one of your little ones shares my name! :)

I'm glad you could enjoy your sous chefs. I'm guessing the 10th time they empty your cupboards you'll be looking for the door locks! I hope you have a great weekend and are able to slow down and enjoy your time away. I know that will be a challenge. I bet they'd love playing in the beach sand if you can make it there.
