I actually managed to cook a meal in peace!! It was super. Hanna helped, while Joe played computer games and Jack took a late nap. Now, part of our dinner was from Let's Dish, but hey, I still had to do a little prep for it and put it in the oven:-).
We had three cheese spinach stuffed shells (courtesy of Let's Dish), sauteed garlic green beans (me), and homemade cheddar-dill scones (made by Hanna and myself).
The whole scone idea was inspired by one of my "bloggy" friends, Ticia. She shared a good scone recipe on my homeschool blog last week. I really, really wanted some bread type thing with our pasta. I have never, ever had success with homemade biscuits. I figured I'd try and find a good cheddar scone recipe and give it a shot. OH MY GOSH!!!! These were sooooooo good! They seriously turned out perfect. I will share the recipe Sunday on my Homeschool Blog with my "kids in the kitchen" weekly carnival. Here is a picture though.
So, after dinner Hanna and Joe went outside to play. Jamie, Jack and myself were still finishing up and cleaning up. Jack got so giggly in his high chair. I realized I don't have any pictures of him laughing alot, and he laughs often and "with his whole body"--so sweet. I captured a couple.
This is his new favorite camera face. I guess when you get a camera shoved in your face as much as my kids do, you learn the "cheese" grin quickly--here is his:
