I can honestly say Jamie has only cooked dinner three times since we have been married. Two of those three have been french toast, eggs and fruit. The third was last night and it followed the same theme, except it was pancakes, eggs and fruit. Jamie doesn't cook, his idea of cooking for us is taking us out or bringing home takeout--which is fine too! Bless his heart, he cooked last night, and he even created "art" while he cooked. Let me explain....
Jamie is self employed, running Saluda Cymbals. So, he called me over this evening to show me a couple of pancakes he'd made to look like two of his cymbal lines. This was too cute! Here are the pancakes and the cymbals as well. I have to admit, there are similarities. Way to go Jamie for making cooking fun and creative:-)!
In addition to cooking, helping tons with the kids for days now, and running errands daily, he's also been doing the laundry. I am almost embarrassed to admit these things. It is so not like me to let him do these things, except spending time with the kids, of course. It has been wonderful though. I am so thankful he not only helps, but does so without being asked. He just steps in and helps happily and this is a blessing!
