Last weekend, Eliyahu (5) asked Joshua to help him make pie. So, they did! At one point, Joshua was in the kitchen with Eliyahu, Ruth (3) and Moshe (1), working on the pies. (I escaped to the living room and played Risk with Yehoshua (6)!) I think I got some extra sympathy for my task of cooking with all the kids "helping" after that. ;)
I had sliced apples for with our dinner that night, and Eliyahu used a butter knife to chop up all the leftover slices (with peeling on!). Joshua made pie crust in the food processor (so much easier). They used my mom's Perfect Apple Pie recipe. Apple pie is probably my all-time favorite pie... it's just SO GOOD.
I has a scoop of homemade peach frozen yogurt on my hot apple pie. Way too good!!! :)
And while I'm posting about the kids... here is a picture of Moshe I took this week. He opened the oven drawer (the stove/oven was off, of course), climbed inside, and then was asking me to help him get back out. ;) It was so cute to see him stuck in there! :)
