Pie Time!

It's been a rainy, yucky day today. When I picked LO up from school, she asked what fun stuff we were going to do today. Obviously with the rain we weren't going to be able to hit up the playground across the street, and much to her dismay, we had no scheduled plans to see Gramma, PaPa or Mona, so she was royally bummed to hear that we were just gonna head home -- just her, Chase and I.

After lunch, I asked her if she'd like to help me make an apple pie. She was totally stoked with the idea, and started peeling the apples while I made the dough for the crust. I tried my best to let her do everything, even though it meant things would get pretty messy. She had a ball! And she's so good at helping! She really enjoyed herself, and we have an amazing pie to show for it!

Here's a little clip of her helping me slice the apples, with Chase as her helpful assistant. They had so much fun together -- it was awesome!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This pie was created for consumption by our family only. No way would I let this sort of "help" happen when making a dessert to share with people outside of our little family of 4. ;)





Here's the finished product! Not too shabby, LO! :)
