the simple things like eating meals at the table as a family are so important to us. even if it is just sitting down to eat a bowl of cereal together (oh just watching the dribbles of milk from those little mouths makes me smile). this morning, I made a huge batch of cinnamon french toast, like this recipe from one of my favorite blogs smittenkitchen. as we sat there, evan looked over to me, his little glasses covered in berries, and said, ‘thanks for making this delicious french toast mama.’ certainly a sweet tuesday!
ps. happy 75th anniversary to my late grandma & grandpa bennett, who taught us all the significance of family with 13 children, 57 grandchildren and endless great-grandchildren! we miss you and hope you are dancing in heaven today!
