Mama Angie’s first batch of cookies

Yeah, I know I never made cookies before, crazy uh? I suppose I was never quite the homemaker type, but I am now enjoying being one very much.  If anyone care to help please send us some yummy cookies recipes please.  Anyway, this is my first batch and they turned out quite good.  Loved the shapes!  Andrew helped of course.

The bunny story and the stubborn boy.

This is Andrew this morning showing mama where the bunny rabbit ran to. The bunny rabbit was hiding under the arugola in our veggie garden and we had startled him while playing fetch with Jamal. The bunny quickly ran across the enclosed veggie garden and out through the little hole of the fence.. but the poor little thing got stock in the fence with his butt for a little while before he could escape and quickly run off, away from the approaching Jamal.

Oh all this was of great amusement to the boy, who also ran after the bunny. So below he is telling mama where the bunny went and then he’s mimicking the “I don’t know where he is”.

Now, let’s talk about the choice of clothes here: this is what Andrew wanted to wear today and he would not have it any othe way… he wanted his pj pants on top of his overalls! Oh my adorable little man!

Questo e’ Andrew questa mattina che punta il dito per far vedere alla mamma dov’e’ scappato il coniglietto. Il povero coniglietto era tranquillamente nascosto sotto l’arugola del nostro orticello, quando evidentemente l’abbiamo disturbato mentre giocavamo con Jamal; il coniglietto cosi’ cerca di scappare, attraversa l’orto, ma rimane incastrato nella rete per qualche secondo prima di riuscire a sfuggire da Jamal che nel frattempo si era accorto dell’intruso; cosi’ Andrew, molto divertito e affascinato dalla scena, anche lui corre dietro al coniglietto. Qui sotto fa vedere alla mamma dov’e’ andato il coniglietto, e sotto mimica “non so dove sia adesso”. Parliamo adesso della scelta di vestiti: questo e’ cio’ che Andrew ha voluto mettersi oggi e non c’era modo di dissuaderlo dal voler mettere i pantaloncini del pigiama sopra la tutina. Oh il mio adorato bambino testardo!
