I love Rainy days! The gloomy weather outside always makes me feel refreshed and cheery inside! It makes me want to bake, and clean, get organized and spend a lazy afternoon at the library. Elise loves books so today after the girls had naps and snacks we went on a short splashy ride in the van to discover books galore! Elise is funny, she always heads straight for the books we have on our shelves at home. I guess there's just something magical about reading them at the library.
But before all of that, we baked cookies! Elise loves to help me bake. Her favourite part is the clean up. There's nothing quite like splashing is a sink full of murky cookie batter water! I love to let her help me but it can be quite a challenge having an almost two year old helping out in the kitchen. I have discovered that the key is to keep her little hands busy constantly. If things start to get out of hand there is always a bottle of Vanilla that just needs to be shaken or a basket of measuring cups and spoons that needs to be reorganized! And she is always eager to shake or reorganize something.
